When was the last time you caught yourself over thinking/analyzing a thought?
The intelligence we as people poses has both sides of a coin; it can run around freely and manifest as a vivid imagination or wonderful dreams. for example, it enabled me to create this visual. But the other side isn’t always so great.
Our brain can work with us or against us. It’s a wild bird we need to learn how to tame, otherwise it can get out of control. I know from experience, that most of the time the reason I’m stuck isn’t because of a problem I’m facing. Most of the time it’s for no reason at all.
The way I’m able to notice it is when I listen to others. To an outside perspective, and try not to dismiss it. It’s just like checking if a certain criticism is reliable; if you see it repeating from unrelated multiple sources, it’s probably true.
Once I keep that in mind, I can find a way to untangle myself, and it works every time.
Author: Gelman, born in Hungary and raised in Israel, relocated to New York City in 2016, where
he continued his education in photography at ICP and the Pratt Institute. Originally a biochemist, he left science to pursue art- a language that allows him to navigate between the real and surreal.
The young artist fuses photography and digital painting, using image manipulation techniques to create unique dark and whimsical imagery. His technique enables visuals, previously only in his mind, to come together through dynamic postures and dark colors. Gelman aspires to tell an entire story with a single image.
