Responsorial – Introduction to a new series
—a word (adjective, as defined at Wiktionary):
1. Of or pertaining to a response (in all senses)
—an art project
MC and I select a single word (a noun or adjective, object or concept).
One of us posts a starting photograph that somehow responds to that word.
We then take turns posting visual responses to the same word and each added image.
Result: a mosaic of photographs connected by this process.
That’s when you can enter the process by looking at all the images, guessing possible words, and posting them as comments.
Later, I post the “mystery” word along with a “guess list”. This participatory art project series may be published later in another format.
It’s an exercise, a puzzle—as much about thought as it is about word.
To the left: the starting image of the first responsorial panel of eight photographs bound together by visual elements and a word.
When you study the entire panel of photos it will be challenging to find a “target” word they have in common.
It’s not about finding the “right” answer; it’s about exploring the complex relationship between word and image, mind and eye. It’s about finding connections between image and word. It’s about exploring complexity and simplicity.
