So its been a while but with uni not so far away (im eagerly counting down the days) I am starting to get back into the rhythm of reading stuff online for ideas and to help develop a more abstract way of thinking. Shaun recommended to all of us that we should read/watch talks and research on TED.com which I have only just started getting into but already one talk in particular has caught my attention.
Olafur Eliasson: Playing with space and light
His talk focuses on how we put ourselves in space and how we perceive what we are seeing in terms of distance, time, location etc. He mentions a very good idea about how waterfalls are a great way of measuring space, as the higher the waterfall the slower the water appears to fall. This is genius to me as it is such a effective idea!
