Happy Sunday, friends.
Today's inspiration is both artistic and thought-provoking. It features performance artist Jillian Mayer as she chases projected images of screensavers with idyllic scenes. Mayer says on her Web site that these sorts of images are created by design programs to be more attractive so that they appeal to our primal desire to be outside rather than in front of a computer or in urban landscapes, which often aren't the most aesthetically pleasing. The film shows that "even if Mayer were to ever catch up with her object of desire, she will find it never existed in the first place... She has been chasing the unattainable."
This is an inspiring piece that has been screened at the Guggenheim Museums in New York, Berlin, Bilbao, and Venice, among other places. I hope you enjoy it.
Wishing you all a creative and inspirational Sunday. ☺
