…for a good reason: I don’t like labels. Never have and never will because I find them limiting and restrictive.
But a lot of people love labels and seem to be walking around with invisible label makers at all times – an easy and comfortable solution. Once something is labeled our mind takes a break, goes on auto-pilot and brings up associations based on previous experiences with that label. As a result
people are stuck with predefined perceptions and experiences. A safe and predictable but also limiting way of experiencing the world.
We all have a choice; mine is to keep my mind and imagination active and infinite. And that’s why I love untitled pieces of art!
To see we must forget the name of the thing we are looking at.
– Claude Monet
