It may be a matter of breathing life into something overlooked

Challenge: Noise Challenge #2: The Little Things |

By: Salomeh

We can think about how we ourselves feel when we take things for granted. What do we neglect to listen to? How are we simultaneously connected to the most spontaneous layers of ourselves in relation to the noises around us? What do those noises, whether functional, metaphysical, spiritual, ontological or emotional, activate in us? In opening ourselves we may activate realms of our inner city spaces to those outer ones that are repetitive, detailed, colourful and that both protect us and make us vulnerable to  the kind and unkind energies of our environments.

How do we connect to aspects of our being through the insignificant sounds and signs and transform them and reconnect with aspects of our being that have been forcefully suppressed? If we trust that the spaces around us and our interactions with them have the power to reciprocally reanimate segments of our interiors that feel dead, frozen, confused, vulnerable, phony, painful or lost, then perhaps we can allow ourselves to feel the colourful beauty in a more clear-sighted manner. This will allow us to discern dimensions of noises we normally overlook.
