I recently started reading a book on mindfulness and ways to incorporate mindful practices into everyday life. I realized that what mindfulness tries to teach, being present in the moment, is an integral part of how I see the world as a designer and artist. If I had to define mindfulness visually it would be synonymous with negative space, the visual breathing room which allows you to pause and appreciate the detail, nuance and beauty of forms and objects.
If I had to represent the language of ‘visual mindfulness’, in my mind it would look something like this…
Great cities are works of art on a grand scale; like a masterpiece, they require years of study and exploration to be truly understood and appreciated.
As a student of art and architecture, I was thrilled when I recently had the opportunity to make multiple visits to one such great city, Paris.
Although I have been to Paris before, the visual landscape revealed itself in new ways and became a source of endless inspiration.
