Imagine spending two days in New York City sketching with fifteen remarkable artists led by Veronica Lawlor. I had one goal in mind. I wanted to be introduced to one new way of looking at the world that could shift my approach to translating reality into visual design on a two-dimensional surface. Veronica introduced us to the idea visualizing a glass cube and bringing elements from our surroundings in from all six planes of the glass cube.
Prior to this weekend I hadn’t realized that I thought in terms of only five planes, not six. Adding that sixth plane into my consciousness actually extended the potential of the other five planes! The world around me became as flexible as the spaces in my data art. This is why I continue to take workshops. I either need to be reminded of something I already know but have forgotten to incorporate into my current work or I want to break out of a rut of doing things from the same way of thinking and seeing.
