“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts, in Context.”
I was experimenting with building pictures out of smaller pictures, or elements. Here is a table of the elements from which to choose from:
Now I will choose a few of the elements – in this case the Elephant, Hourglass, Curtains, and Arches:
Here is a picture which is formed out of these elements (Note how the table of the elements, in a different color, forms the backdrop to the picture) –
Here is another picture formed of the same elements:
Next, I will choose different elements from the table – (in this case, the Clock, Hourglass, Palm Tree, Flower, Ionic Column, Star, Curtains, and Double Rectangles) –
Here is the resulting picture:
Do you see how different basic elements (icons) can be combined to make larger and more complex pictures? This is a form of “Intercontexting”!
