Daily Dose: Creating Thoughtful Art

A meaningful piece of artwork is usually both well visually and conceptually tied together.

“There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept.” -Ansel Adams

Ansel Adams says this with great experience behind him. He is one of America’s most famed black and white photographers that worked in the 20th century. This quote can be literally related to photography such as in the context of a random snap shot that is focused and exposed correctly but lacks any significant meaning. This expands to other fields like designs that are functional versus aesthetically pleasing. You can even take this deeper and think of it as a way of life like in the context of why you pick the clothes you wear, the music you listen to, the foods you eat, etc. You can do all of these things flawlessly but keep in mind the context of why you do things the way you do them.

Remember that everything you do can be as sharp and precise as you want them but if its for a fuzzy purpose then consider, what is the point?
