There is nothing more profound than blank space… This recent revelation is the inspiration behind a new photo series I am currently working on.
Two years have passed since the inception of L’homme de la Renaissance, and it is now time to once again revisit the idea behind this project. With a humble beginning as a photo journal, L’homme de la Renaissance has evolved over the last two years into both a visual diary and travel chronicle. Today, this evolution continues as my interests grow, and in an effort to encompass these various pieces, L’homme de la Renaissance will now serve as a creative journal. Although it will combine several forms of art and design moving forward, L’homme de la Renaissance will remain visually driven in order to stay true to its origins. However, since L’homme de la Renaissance has also proven to be rather prone to evolution, it will now permanently function as a work in progress.
All mathematics is design, the design of nature, the design of the abstract world… Because a design is abstract, higher mathematics is merely a study of design, and that is why the mathematician sees his subject as beautiful, while the layman sees it as confusion. The layman fails to become conscious of design.
We have always been told that we are products of our environment, but this is not necessarily true. In reality, and more precisely, we are functions of our environment.
“x” being our environment, and “f” being the sum total of the ideas, experiences, inspirations, and encounters beyond our environment; our traditional setting, our home.
f(x) = x^2
“x” is constant, but “f” is liable to change, and for this reason, we are not merely products of our environment. We are much more than that. In other words, we are x^2.
I have always felt drawn to images that don’t explain themselves too much or too quickly, but leave you open to create your own interpretation or relationship.
