    Image: A Space

    Type: INFJ

    Outside it's night...late at night or early morning. It's a gallery in a museum, but it's either just been purchased, or just been abandonned--the floors are still clean, though the light is not. There are plants just off screen, and the next room is bright as if it's lit with neon lights. Now I'm starting to think it's daylight outside. Perhaps this is a space of light and dark, day and night. The room I see the most of feels abandonned, but the bit of the next room I see feel occupied. The next room's light looks cleaner and more like daylight than this room. This room feels haunted and lonely. The plants bother me now because I don't know if they are a reflection or if they are in an alcove. The reflection in the window gives me the impression this main room looks exactly the same behind "us" and is symmetrical.

    Tower Image.

    Kind of an unexpected perspective of the Eiffel Tower cuz it is usually depicted in the whole, orthogonally in elevation- it's an icon, a symbolic object, less a spatial experience.

    Tower image

    Eiffel Tower, so it's obviously France. Looking up through the tower, nice composition of the photo - not the standard touristy shot. People at the bottom of the tower. Locals or tourists, whatever. Remembering what I've read about the Eiffel Tower, and Eiffel the engineer. Well built construction.

    This is fun - I want to do all of them

    A space:

    Cold, loud echoey room. Very modern, wooden floors. Like what you see in the Home decorator magazines. Light coming through the window at the far end, lighting up the space. No furniture, looks like an impersonal public space. The ramp at the left hand side, leading up to something. An outdoor space to the right, also a cold impersonal public space, no plant life.

    A painting

    Woot - surrealism! Almost looks like a painting by Renee Magritte but not quite. Something from a slightly newer era perhaps.

    Drag my attention back to the details for the purpose of this exercise. There's a woman, a statue, her head sticking out a window and her hands below. And there's a nagging feeling I've seen some of this artist's paintings in a RL exhibition somewhere or in a coffee table art book but I can't remember their name and it bugs me that I can't. The colours are unbalanced, too much reds and oranges and browns - prefer Magritte because the colours are more balanced, more blues and greens and he is a much better artist IMO.

    Details, come on, focus on details. Um. I could describe the elements of the painting but that would be *boring* and irrelevant because this is a surrealist painting. To be groked as a whole, not pulled apart into pieces. There's a feeling of static-ness, static society, confining, restricted, repressed.

    I did this one when I was MBTI tested! We were split into groups with the paintings without being told (at that point) what the significance of intuition vs sensing was.

    Tower image:

    "It's the Eiffel Tower, photographed from an angle that makes it look even more phallic than usual."

    Space image:

    "Nice room. I would love to party there."

    Painting image:

    "Damn, I'm not into art. Let's see, what did I used to come up with in middle school to appease my art teachers? It's like he's on the inside, looking out. Trapped and lonely and longing to be in the sun."
