...us all talking in numbers or notes.
While I am the one who loves words (to hear them, read them, write them, even see them), my husband is a maths genius (and obviously my son is too) . To him numbers and algorithms are just different ways to express ideas and ways to describe systems in our world.
When I stumbled upon the music sheet background page in my art journal I thought that notes are a different kind of language too. So I decided to bring letters, notes and numbers together and do an art journal page about ...well, about what exactly? About life I guess. Life seen (and expressed) from a different perspective. My son and my HB both find systems almost everywhere - in shopping malls as well as out in beautiful nature - and they all can be described numerically.
Being able to write down a wonderful musical composition is just another language, isn't it? I love it when music is in the air - and imagine the notes flying around, dancing in the air to a mathematically (?) organized choreography, weaving a wonderful carpet of sound - talking to us without words, but evoking a lot of images, feelings, colours maybe? Music and imagination go together so well, don't they?
I really admire composers and mathematicians - they "speak" languages I am not able to use myself as I am a words-fixated girl. I even guess they see the world differently.
I love the shapes of letters, different fonts, the look of music sheets or calculations on paper. Doing this page I enjoyed playing around with the shapes of numbers, letters, single words, black and white space and covered against non covered areas.
Have a good start into the week! It's grey in grey over here again....*sigh.
Hugs and happy crafting!
PS: as mathematics will always remain a big mystery to me, I enter this journal page to Simon Says Monday Challenge "It's a Mystery".
