On the idea of interconnectedness and representation

Simona's picture

This isn't directly connected to any class assignment-- but I thought this TED talk was super interesting, considering our recent discussions about interconnectedness and nature/society/world, and considering our artistic approaches to representing the environment. Many of us seemed to photograph the ice at Tinicum, and this is one artists approach!

icebergs melting, rolling...

The icebergs in these photos really convey a sense of being animate, and I especially like the line "as the iceberg melts, i am breathing in its energy" - so highlights this blurriness between "it" and "I"!

"I approach photographing

"I approach photographing these icebergs as if I'm making portraits of my ancestors"

Beautiful idea, maybe a pretty porous concept of our interconnections!
