Breathing Triangles was an exercise in curation. A side project undertaken by pixelshifter. To entertain myself.
The internet is fairly great, quite astounding really. None of us could have dreamt that it would become the behemoth that it is today. So many pages, so much great content. A lot of absolute crap too. I enjoy the challenge in finding the good pages, the often interesting, quirky treats, less sought after, hiding in the corner.
Early last year, I was fortunate to visit the Museum of Old and New Art (Mona) in Hobart, Tasmania. The private collection of local, David Walsh. Being a private collection (as opposed to public) the thing that struck me the most was what the collection as a whole said to me. Very powerful. Moving. Overwhelmed. An intense feeling that was no doubt a result of the collection being greater than the sum of it’s parts. More powerful than a collection that is “public” and restricted in it’s expression. For mine, I found the art to be a bit too “angry man” for me. I prefer playfulness, colour and thought provoking. But maybe it was the confronting nature that hit me.
I was left with this feeling, and Breathing Triangles is my reaction. A little corner of the internet where you just browse through a collection of pages, that somehow as a whole may say something. And maybe not. Simple things, colourful things, moving things, playful things, science things, natural things. As a whole, they speak to me. Curious about the art of curation.
