So, fun fact. I'm blind. About at light perception, but that's pretty much it. When I could see better and learnt of him, I Wikied it to see if I might be able to see it. The image was too complex for my eyes to comprehend, but the very idea of it, based on the descriptions I read, was what left such an impression on me. I was glad to finally use it in a piece. This is actually about two things--the more generic being that Caitlin and I understand each other, support each other, love each other, grow with each other so completely, and the second was that I was referring to a time when she and I touched each other's faces (we're both blind). There's a lot of misconception where touching faces is concerned--with some of us blind folk, it's taboo, and for others, like her and me, it's reserved for extremely special people and situations. So, that was a very poignant moment for us. That's not as apparent in the text, since it's only twelve words long, but I had to share. Just the thought of us kind of sculpting each other through touch and creating our own mental images of one another was much the same concept of Escher's hands drawing one another.
I've had some vision before, so I have a pretty good concept of what a typical surrounding would and should look like. Often times I will touch a composiition and then step back, holding the amera at face-level as if it's simply a third eye. Usually works halfway decently.
Thank you, Michael! You know, I tried to see the picture once when I learnt of it, but even though I couldn't, just the very idea of it was really impactful to me. So, it's stuck with me all this time.
