Abstracting Music

37.262_ph_web

The current project as made me start thinking about the challenge of abstracting ideas and words. It reminds me of the work of Kandinsky, a painter who sought to create abstract paintings of music. In a similar way to our project, he is using something form the world to create abstract forms and meaning; however, his challenge was to turn a purely abstract thing and turn it into a physical interpretation.I think his story and philosophy of painting is inspirational as an artist and designer. His use of color and line to create rhythm could be useful in this project.
