Almost everything we form starts from a unit. It can repeat to form a pattern like the brick in a building facade. Just by changing the arrangement, a totally new face appears. It is a visual art.
In music, we have notes. How each would sound, is composed. The musician is very cautious about the selection and sequence. Architecture is sometimes called, “Frozen Music”.
Buildings too speak, within a single structure the windows, plain surfaces, it outlines i.e. form gives you a message. When all the buildings are in harmony, people feel and relate to a clear message. At times, buildings are shouting at each other, then we can not understand anything, which creates anger and frustrations. Harmony and balance are the two qualities that enhance the built environment.
The built environment is a product that in turns affects our mindset.Sometimes, we visit historical places to understand the people who built those structures, it seldom talks about the common man. Huge Palaces, gardens and monuments are the representation of power and wealth. Still, we feel happy to be in that environment, we want to relate to the rich and famous, we try to own that historical era as ours but we do not actually live or think like them.
We the citizens of this world from all locations have formed a global community. The acceptance of the architecture style especially in commercial, institutional buildings and its repetition in design solutions shows that fact, globally we have synced into similar, material, building technology, working standards.
Now, everything is standardized so that one thing produced in a particular location does not necessarily be produced locally. rather it can be manufactured in another part of the world.Slowly and gradually we have arrived at a melting point…but we have yet to melt.
In a physical context, where you stand or sit, even lay down and turn your head in a certain direction that is your viewpoint. The photographer does many sittings to capture a shot in long hours.We enjoy daily photographs on our Facebook, scenery, birds, big cats, wilderness and so on.
Each picture is awesome, brings a shine to our eyes.The painter brings up the concept from inner emotions and with colours, textures, forms a painting. His view may be different from that of a viewer. Some will appreciate others would not go inside his mind. His strokes, balance, composition, selection of medium speaks about his level of mastery. We the ordinary people enjoy the work and feel happy.
Sculptors are amazing, they chisel out something from solid rock. When you see the beginning and the end, you have a question. Really? But, he has actually carved it out
A poet writes his song or poetry, and we read or listen. The feelings with which he writes may not get absorbed or synched with our feelings, yet we may grasp something. When a singer then sings with a melody, it has a totally different level in its impact.
When we write a letter, comment, biography or report, we have in our mind a target group. We never write for ourselves, we write for a reader. This reader may at average has a reading capacity of 10th grader if you use difficult words in every sentence, the interest level will drop and pages would get skimmed and never read.In all our conversations, we have a you-viewpoint, which is a very old concept but still works.
The you-viewpoint that has been used is to be careful about the other person emotions and being conscious about your own achievement. With friends we normally are relaxed they are not a target group to benefit us. But, yes we should be very careful in posting images, comments, sharing songs etc, it may get a warm welcome or may shock/ annoy them.
if we keep on annoying them, one day will get left alone and have only our viewpoint which is not very educating.
