Going Stir Crazy

By Acancarter  
An abstract for these times. This is four captures from the harmonograph. The only element 'computer generated' is the sequential colour switching of the light source. from the initial 'stir' frame with just the fast platform moving I've progressively added motion on the slow platform, building up the chaos. I think it would look good as a massive canvas print (huge file, nearly 4x FF) but it might drive you mad!

I needed some abstract images for our CC next zoom comp - this will be one of them I think.

Fascinating and thought provoking, this could run from right to left also, a visual representation of meditation for calming and cantering 🙂 fine work here.

centering, not cantering, but maybe it works for riders, too 🙂

The figure on the left is restful: but the one on the right might well drive one mad.

You two are my heroes, giving really good comments, taking an interest and posting your own brilliant work for me to enjoy!

It is interesting how the mind works... flipping the image horizontally to me is really disturbing, almost unpleasant... as we read from left to right you are hit with the disturbance first and it stays with me... omitting the last capture makes the whole image less upsetting... but we are all encouraged to bring out an emotional response in our viewers!

I'm interested to see if you get a 'synaesthesia' response from this... eg https://www.sussex.ac.uk/synaesthesia/ .. A friend recently told me about this... synaesthesia is a joining together of sensations that are normally experienced separately. Studying synaesthesia may help us to understand how the brain segregates and integrates different sensations and thoughts. I can sort of 'sense a sound' when looking at this image, particularly the last frame...

Thank you!

I'll step back from the synaesthesia question, because I know my brain is wired atypically: I'm what is called neurodiverse, though the term was coined by neurotypical people, who expect everyone to be just like they are... (I exaggerate. A bit.) So my mind sees something that confuses it on the right, and I don't want to look, and turn from it before any gut reaction can kick in, so to speak.
