Now, that's a real challenge. Agnes Martin (1912-2004 -- sigh, how can she be dead???!!!) spent her life on the grid, that quintessentially modernist creature.
In her own words:
"Nature is like parting a curtain, you go into it. I want to draw a
certain response like this. Not a specific response but that quality of
response from people when they leave themselves behind, often
experienced in nature -- an experience of simple joy, this simple,
direct going into a field of vision as you would cross an empty beach to
look at the ocean.(Agnes Martin, New York,
1993, p. 109).
What exactly is she mapping? We can only know by looking at the paintings -- ideally, in the flesh.
But here's a photo anyway: Starlight, watercolor and ink on paper, 1963
Herewith a great site on "apartment therapy". Yes, yet another application of visual facilitation in creating a personal and visually exciting space to live in... They wrote an article on an exhibit currently at the MOMA called "Color Chart: reinventing color, 1950 to today" showing how artists used the industrialization of color production and the rise of the color chart. What is really going on here, one wonders... this "mapping" of the world of color clearly opens new doors to artists ... and the artist in us all!
Hey look! David Sibbet, founder of The Grove and the guy who first made visual facilitation come to life, did a roundtable facilitation of a meeting with "'venture capitalists and
technology innovators, including Mint.com, Mozilla, and Facebook, at
IDEO Labs to discuss how government can improve how it is delivering
services to the American people." (Vivek Kundra, U.S. Chief Information Officer)
It's a pity he didn't mention David Sibbet by name, however! This is art we're talking about!
