Micro/Macro


We popped into Micro/Macro yesterday on the way home from lunch. Ryoji Ikeda's installation at Carriageworks that closes next week on the 29th. Warning for anyone with sound sensitive kids, it's probably not for them.

I really enjoyed the overwhelming sensation, as you sit on the micro while watching the macro, so to speak.

It got me thinking, we always tend to look at things one way or another - we're either focused on the big picture, or caught up in the minutiae of life. When really, both are happening simultaneously.

So I guess the lesson is, when the big picture is bringing you down, focus on the little things and conversely, when overwhelmed by day to day life, try to shift your focus to the horizon, and remember, this too shall pass.

Love that I have easy free art on my doorstep!

  3. I love the micro / macro (simultaneous) focus. Scientists usually suggest that you switch from one to the other when you get stuck on a problem or something don't they? Step back and look at the big picture, or focus on and look at process! #teamlovinlife
