    I was thinking about abstracts that are not object driven... so i looked at the no words forum and was drawn to one of the recent posts by Luis - at the edge of the abyss. But not as a place... I was thinking, read it as an open ended aphorism.

  7. One feature, in my opinion, of "pure abstraction" is that there are no identifiable objects from the "real world." I suspect this hypothesis may correspond with your concept of an image not being object driven.

  8. correspondish... but for this one I was thinking about representations of, "existing as an idea, feeling, or quality, not as a material object:" even with using a recognizable object.

    "One feature, in my opinion, of "pure abstraction" is that there are no identifiable objects from the "real world.""
    Agreed, I tend to use that description also. But love playing it loosely most of the time.

  9. II think it is difficult (a few exceptions exist) to exclude real world objects from a photo but we can mask the reality of the object in order to create an abstract photo. So, when we make an abstract photo we are withholding information from the viewer and it is this tease that attracts me to abstract photographs.

    (Of course sometimes I don’t care what the real object is and appreciate the visual stimuli on its own)
