I have a busy mind that grabs on to many concepts; global thinking , like an over-charged butterfly, probably a variation of ADHD. One of the concepts that I am exploring is how digital art & mass media can return us to earlier cultural views of reality. The First Nation culture has much to offer to all of us and I have been fortunate to be exposed to it by my students & colleagues. The First Nation cultural view sees the world as inter-connected. The realm of spirit and physical reality are one. The environment is a gift that must be respected and shared.
Photography can allow us to better understand the inter-connectivity of the world. Here, above the North Shore of Lake Huron, the landscape of this part of Ontario reminds us of this world that is both physical & spiritual. As I explore my surroundings through my camera lens and use the tools of imaging software, I go on a Vision Quest to capture/experience this environment of ancient rock and eternal sky. This post is the first in what will hopefully become a larger series: the goal is to learn & grow. Enjoy the day.
