The Cognitive Daily has another interesting post, talking about how we assign emotions to graphic shapes based on how they are arranged. For example, a triangle that is sitting on its base appears to be “strong”, while a triangle that is tilting on its point appears to be “fearful”. This ability of our minds to seek out humaness in the most abstracted environments is a strong force in my photography. The photographs I create are not just random, chaotic abstractions. I seek out shapes, contours, and patterns that tease our minds into seeing objects, characters, or scenes. I am fascinated how these images, which seem to be non-representational, can stongly suggest emotion and personality.
