I wrote What Each Of Us Notices a while back to offer a bit of an illustration of how I perceive things. I find perception and its variations fascinating, and I also find that it can sometimes be difficult in the realm of the highly word-oriented Internet to remain cognizant of the myriad ways different people might process, interpret, and appreciate the world around them.
Anyway, while I've been working on a few "wordy" posts that I hope to have in a bloggable state soon, I figured I'd do another perception/picture post tonight, as I spent most of today in San Francisco at the Exploratorium. Aside from it being a bit noisy in that echo-y way that reminds me disconcertingly of the school gymnasiums of my youth, the Exploratorium is one of the coolest environments there is -- not only is there science everywhere, there are also a ton of purely visual delights, including many Things That Spin. :D
The photos below are just a few of the images that caught my eye today.
A panel on the wall made of numerous tiny curved mirrors:
A neat spinny disc-shaped thing in the wall:
A portion of the inside architecture of the Exploratorium. Not an exhibit -- just a collection of lines, angles, and surfaces I found really cool:
Matt (my SO) and me inside a giant kaleidoscope (basically 3 mirrors held together at the edges in a triangle shape):
(As always, I would absolutely love to see images -- drawings, photographs, etc. -- from others, so feel free to comment with links to things you feel are representative of how you see the world.)
