IF-perspective

By spotogspindel | February 28, 2010

Nothing puts my thoughts about life in perspective like watching a National Geographic program about space. Be it the moon-landing, dark energy, how space was created from nothing and expanded to infinity in a split second.

How can I illustrate that in a good way though?

This quote by Aldous Huxley really got to me, and I wanted to use it. To remind myself that this is addressed to me, I added a little self-portrait in the corner, with the Earth reflecting in my eye. I wanted a bit of science in there, and something to symbolize the mind, which is a universal miracle in itself.

Playing around with what optical illusions can do to your perspective…

    Aldous huxley is a good read sometimes. Point Counter point was “interesting”

    Great images. My favourite is the top one, there is an ‘interesting’ sparkle in that eye of yours. 😉

    What was I saying about brains?

    Phrenolgy maps? It;s interesting how they relate the star maps and the human element together….
