Art, Interpretation and Perception

Into the world behind the eyes
Into the world behind those eyes

Event One

Boulevard Montmartre at Night
Boulevard Montmartre at Night

denial / anticipation

how odd it is
that i see the same place the same way
while the same place isn’t the same place
it doesn’t wear the fabric it used to
it doesn’t carry the scent it used to
it doesn’t sing the song it used to
i’m here yet again
dropped by the same train
feeling nothing but insane
to come back again

how odd it is
that the same place is the same place
even when years became eons
it does wear the color it used to
it does carry the aroma it used to
it does sing the lyrics it used to
i’m here yet again
dropped by the same train
standing with my backpain
to feel humane

how odd it is
that i deny and anticipate
for the same place
at the same time

Event Two

Take a look at this interpretation of the same art by another human.

The Relation

Perception widens through exploration.

We are too impatient to look for the author/ artist/ creator’s perspective. So we assume things based on a self constructed and constrained synthetic box of perception misleading us to pseudo-perception of truth and reality. The result of this is misunderstanding, argument, conflict, abuse, hatred and war. Good thing in art is there is no such thing as right perspective. Its all about opening up to what it is really infront of us. It is irrelevant to label one’s perception as amateur infact when we all have unique lens to view the world.

But there is a third one.

in self simulated worlds

This constructs the core of our consciousness making us believe we are only this one personality type when, truly, we are a spectrum. We set ourselves a narrative and we stick to it. Spending and speeding the rest of our lives without atleast taking a peek outside the walls we built.

It can be true that what you see in an art or a painting is a close reflection of how your core self is currently experiencing the world.

I used to think curiosity was the driver behind this exploration. I was wrong.

It is empathy.

yours, me.
