Art Opens Our Eyes

The city is like poetry: it compresses all life, all races and breeds, into a small island and adds music and the accompaniment of internal engines.” ~ E.B.White (source)

The Most Wonderful Invention

The most wonderful invention of the last quarter century was the phone with a built-in camera. It encourages us to open our eyes with a discernment that has never been truly available to the public.

In short, it allows everyone an opportunity to see the world with its various manifestations and see the poetry that surrounds us. For the artist, it makes the world a palette of imagery.
