AndFarAway

A Blog from Amman, Jordan, Online Since 2004.

Art 101- chalk talk 2 and the conspiracy to make the Jordanian blogosphere more artsy-fartsy

Gestalt is a German word meaning shape or form. The word also bears connotations to creativity (Gestaltung). In English gestalt refers to the concept where an entity’s properties cannot be discovered from the total properties of its parts. The more general English equivalents are synergy, holism, emergence, and variations on the phrase “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts”.

And while we’re on creativity, art, and “whole being greater than sum”, let me introduce everyone to a few brand new Jordanian blogs of yet more “artsy” friends(ex. design students of Jordan);

Fadi
Nada
Hiba Judeh
Super Devoika

Oh, yeah, I will also toss in the blog of my brother – “And Further Away” .
(yes, this is a conspiracy)
