How To See Things With New Eyes


To sort of dovetail on what we were talking about yesterday – “catching magic” in the every day, – I think Ecuadorian artist Javier Perez teaches us just how accessible magic can be!  It can be as simple as looking at old objects with new eyes – a potato can be a rooster, pliers can be a cowboy, a flower can be a gramophone!   His series of everyday items turned into imaginative doodles makes me feel like I should get an agent for my kindergarten finger paintings.
