About Suggestion Box

How many visual cues do we need to complete a picture in our minds? How does text interact with visual information to produce an image or a story in our brains?

This is an investigation into the limits of visual reduction and the power of suggestion. I'm also interested in the degree to which a work of art meets the viewer and in how hard the viewer is willing to work to have an experience.

Serious inquiry? Droll experiment? Maybe a little of both.

The images and titles on this page are often grouped in twos, threes and fours; together, each group forms a progression around a single idea, sometimes a color I request from folks on Twitter and Facebook.

Want to play? Simply look, read, and let your mind fill in the details - then scroll to the next in the series.

To join in, tell me a color name. Just one. Like pink. Or emerald green. I'll do the rest.

Memory of a woman in a red Alexander McQueen dress at 2:00am (Part 3 of 3)

In the picture the woman wears a two-piece, scarlet wool dress by Alexander McQueen. It's sculptural, with a rounded collar dipping to a slotted neckline, fitted at the waist and skimming the knee. The woman looks dark and determined. The lampshade glows red on my desk. I glance at the upper right of my screen. 2:00 am.
