Is Seeing Believing?
Does what we see really exist, or is it based on the context of surrounding elements? Do we see with our eyes or our minds? Is the color Red always Red? Pretty heady stuff, I know, but important for anyone who seeks to grow in understanding the amazing world we live in. A new presentation by TED just might have you questioning your own sense of reality. As a photographer and art director, I repeatedly deal with the power of color and perception. Perhaps the most important thing I have learned is to not pre-judge what I see but to approach every new visual idea with a sense of wonder. You don't have to be an artist or scientist to benefit from wrapping your head around the issues presented in this piece. Actually the questions raised have far reaching implications for just about every thing we do in life.
