This picture really intrigued me. Just as the title describes, this picture can be an infinite amount of possibilities. The way the dots are placed can create numerous of possibilities of images. I can see stars, clouds, the sun and other things. I just find it really interesting that a whole lot dots and lines can produce unlimited amount of shapes when viewed from a distance.
This image is very interesting, it could be many different things, at first it looked like a sun to me and then it made me think of a rug. I like the concept of using dots in an image because it gives the viewer infinite possibilities of what they could see when they look at the picture. I personally see stars, masks and circles.
Well the title to me is a bit odd, if only for the grammar oddity. The piece itself is rather interesting, where it can tend to play with your eyes as our brains try to come up with an image out of it. It’s very dense in the center, then sparse on the outside. I am unsure as to how I’d interpret that, related to the multiverse, but I can picture the center as a dense star field, seemingly vast and ongoing.
This piece is very fun to look at. I love looking at art and just letting my eyes try to figure out what I am looking at. Like Megan Stevenson stated, I also kind of see a rug. But when I look at it in a different way, I could see a city, or even pebble-like things on a beach. It is also more fun to look at because it is in black and white.
Thanks. The title references the well-known line from Walt Whitman’s “Song of Myself”. Here is the original line: “Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes.”
