This showed up on Facebook this morning, by Nick Bantok, one of my creative idols. A good reminder, I presume he won’t mind my sharing it here. And if you are on Facebook and want to see more of this man’s mind and work in action, he’s here: https://www.facebook.com/nickbantock?fref=ts
“If we are to see beyond the edges of predictability, we must first learn to let go of notion that there’s only one reality and begin to learn the art of peripheral perception.
Practice moving your mind’s boundaries—try to think of a colour that doesn’t exist, a word that rhymes with purple or silver, or even try to imagine what lies beyond infinity. Then close your eyes. Look as far as you can to the left and the right and see if you can glimpse the enigmatic inky universe that resides outside our tunneled vision, and observe those great archaic machines with clanking gears and steely wheels that spray sparks of gold and silver dust into a vastly different sky.”
