It is not outside. It’s within. Not so clean and clear on the surface. But as more time is spent thinking and staring within, it starts to become clear. Like vaccum cleaner spick and span. The good part is one can only see within self and show or hide the findings based on your audience type. Unfortunate part is that the audience may have dust-loaded mirrors of their own. So they see you and not themselves. That’s when games begin and playfulness gets lost.
And that’s where, The Purple Frog thinks, creating helps.
Let’s create and play a bit with mirrors. The ones on the outside, in front of which you can make faces, act funny, sexy, or even go all voyeuristic. Lol.
Mirrors are a great way of doing up a space. Apart from adding that fourth dimension, playing with the frame makes it a non-expensive way of adding character to any place that has a bit of your heart in it.
Here are a few pics of a lovely resort in Masai Mara that used mirrors with a touch of tribal. I think, it’s exoticaaaaaa
Someday, The Purple Frog will bring beauty from Africa. That continent is fascinating. They are BIG on art and DIY. Their hands are magical.
Can’t resist telling this one awesome thing about them…Their signboards talk in the language of latitudes and longitudes. And I had my moment with my favourite latitude, Equator. And I walked that line too, so many times. Lol.
Thing this Week
Mirror Mosaic for the first time on a tiny glass bottle
Realisation: Mosaic is a beautiful, simple-sounding, hard-to-pull-off art form. Hats off to those who do it for a living. Not a great job here. But then, experimentation shouldn’t just be a word. The Purple Frog is trying to get an expert to tell us the tricks of mosaic. Keep watching this space!
When this work was happening, Forrest Gump and Active Javed Akhtar were taking turns with their words in the background. Lol. Both are sweethearts with such a clear mirror within…Share this thought:
