Looking at the shadows
The other day in the late morning I passed by a bike parked on the pavement, the shadow it cast was very dark and bold against the gray pavement. The shadow was more visually interesting than the bike wheel itself, and of course seemed a perfect metaphor to play with this week. The elongated shadow, round but not perfectly round, the spokes working in pairs to support the outer rim. Right now my attention is drawn to those pairs of spokes. The two working together, and joining with all the other spokes to create the whole. Two sides of the coin, the shadow and the light, the ying and yang. What are the duel attributes we need to keep balanced to be whole? Here are some pairs that came to my mind. Give+Receive, Lead+Follow, Wander+Root….. what else?
Please offer some pairs that come to your mind by Tuesday night and I will put them in this weeks art offering of the shadow of the wheel.
