Guest Spot: Tom Burnett

Shenandoah Sunset © Tom Burnett

The original sunset, by Tom Burnett.

Tom’s current screen saver displays every single one of his pictures. The images shown here made me think, “Wish I could post them on CatRutgers4art.” Fact is, of course I can! And Guest Spot was born.

Guest Spot will be a monthly-or-so feature, expanding the dialogue on art and artists. By the way, did you catch the anagram? Spot. Post. I love words (and am betting you do too).

Here’s the good word from Mr. Burnett: “The original photo was taken at sunset, overlooking the Shenandoah Valley. I imagined that different life forms may perceive light waves differently than we do and sought to simulate those portals of perception, thus exploring the many possibilities of how a sunset is actually experienced depending on who or what is perceiving it. It’s also fun just to mess around with Photoshop and find a happy place to stop.” Enjoy the view.

About CatRutgers4Art

  1. Lizards and eagles are two of the creatures Tom had in mind. And, yes, they do see things differently. Check out “Do Birds and Reptiles have better vision than us?” at Yahoo! Answers,

    After looking through the earlier post Smell This, Please I’m wondering if scents have an element to them that can be perceived visually. Must do some research on this. I’m imagining that certain parts of the unseen light spectrum can interact with scent signals to create it’s own visual variation though I could be totally of base about this.
    To be continued….
