Tiger, Tiger: II

Leave it to Blake to breathe mystery into beauty. Pulsating with the energy of creeping power. 

I like how famed children's illustrator Maurice Sendak's names him as his favorite writer... and all the while, admits he actually understands just about nothing of what Blake wrote!

"TIGER, tiger, burning bright 
In the forests of the night, 
What immortal hand or eye 
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?"


So, too, with light, with dark and with the human form.

The Bionic Man

Before Google Glass, there was Major Steve Austin.

And his bionic eyes.

Artists, at their best, have them too. That magic vision to see beauty so easily overlooked. Patterns. Form. Color. Negative space. What to exclude and what to include. This way. That way. Just right.

To fashion your own bionic eye... walk. wander. peek. stop. shoot.
