today from a certain opinion on twitter, I remember what i had learnt at ZHdK (Zurich University of the Arts) – defects can be fun.
the opinion was roughly saying that “when we take a picture of our analogue artworks (and upload it on twitter), we must remove/avoid any shadows/obstacles interrupting the artworks in the picture”.
I doubted it. I thought that unexpected shadows are one of the biggest attractive aspects of analogue artworks.(indeed sometimes they are really annoying when I want to edit & modify on photoshop, but still “it is analogue”.)
Then I remembered an experience in Switzerland…
when I had been making a collage handbook, I used too much glue, and the pages had been stuck each other. I was disappointed, but my awesome classmates and teachers saw it and said “that’s interesting”. “that’s beautiful, leave it and go ahead”. I was surprised and could not believe them at that moment. but gradually I have understood that is the way artistic/creative people think.
That’s creative, cheerful and positive of them because they can immediately find out tiny interests and fun in ‘failures/defects’. So clever … I want to be like them.
well, just I have to say thank you a lot to awesome people in Switzerland.
I sometimes do analogue ballpoint-pen art on my sketchbook – here is some:
more analogue arts are on Instagram now.
