In searching for a way to deal with a burn out I have taken up art journalling as a tool to get clarity in my mind about the things I do and don't do. Things that are good and things that need changing. As a part of that process perfection and imperfection have lately been on my mind. So I choose a quote about this subject, that spoke to me. As, in real life, I am an IT engineer.
"As machines become more and more efficient and perfect, so it will become clear that imperfection is the greatness of man." Ernst Fisher.
This quote speaks to me on so many different levels, that I cannot begin to tell you. I did however try to translate all those layers into my journal page, wich I build up out of many, many layers, most of wich aren't even visible anymore.
I choose a picture of Leonardo DaVinci as a representative of the time where science and art were intertwined and the world of knowledge was a far smaller one then it is today. The gears are a representative of the machine as time progressed, with a human heart at it's centre core.
Thank you for watching, and should you have any questions, tips or remarks, please leave a comment below.
