Head to Heart




My first Daily Create for DS106 using http://weavesilk.com/

Trying to represent a connection between the head and the heart. As an academic librarian, I spend a lot of time in my head. Working toward a balance of head and heart work.

  1. Those are beautiful, and a very interesting concept behind them! Can you say more about representing the head/heart connection visually? I think it would be very interesting to read.

    1. Thanks for the question -- I had thoughts about head-heart connection stewing in my brain over the weekend. I imagine I tend to over-think, over-analyze, over-evidence, over-rationalize. I am using my sabbatical to move myself toward more personal connection, inclusiveness, experience. How to represent that visually? Well, in playing with weavesilk, the one image looks like a human to me -- with their core (soul, heart) more prominent than their head. Then I played with the purple and pink weavesilk and was thinking to connect the purple head (with wings? open for more) with the heart (pink).
