On Creating Your Own Meaning

21 February, 2019

In one of my classes we talk endlessly about metaphors and the way that artists create pieces with meaning that sometimes people cannot see. How we can look at a photo of an empty bed and make a connection about love or loneliness even though all we see is an empty bed. It's our culture that has trained us to make these associations and to know that gifting flowers is a sign of love, and we've been conditioned to find meaning in these things that don't inherently have any, so what does that mean for us?
