Mosaic, the art of right image

Is image void of substance? Image communicates, even when it deceives you, when it does not correspond to reality. There is an essence of things which lies beyond words, and that arises visual thinking: we are into the full vortex of a new way to communicate. We are shrewd, we know how to read.

The written word communicates concepts, and reflects on reality, ordering it into a logical sequence of thought.

Image communicates direct essence through perception, it evokes the dimensions and the subtleties of reality, and it can be crude and powerful: when I see the image of a wood, I feel its color green, the coolness, the smell of lichens, the songs of birds  and the sounds of Nature. It took me quite a few words to communicate that which one single image can evoke.

Then, what is sound?  Is it the ultimate root of a word, something onomatopoeic which arises from the experience to describe it? Is it a catching of feelings to express them or manipulate them? Is it the image of a reality which cannot be expressed otherwise?

I think sound is solid reality. Then, the reality of which I speak is a mosaic of elements.

I am a mosaic of elements, words, images and sounds. But I am not that which represents me or that trough which I portray myself. Though, all this expresses me, and it communicates that which can be known about me. The sensory dimension of my person communicates as well.

So here is the art of Mosaic: the right image is an art with which I can construct a world, while I express in some way my life’s experience, and my imaginary world as well, together with one’s tendency to have a desire to express will and being.
