Diptych: Abundant

Posted on 4 May 2010 at 10:49 am in Photography.

Sometimes, what’s interesting about diptych is how far apart our interpretations of a given word might be; this time, what’s interesting is just how close they are. Nicole and I are both thinking citrus, it seems. Coming soon are “urgent” and then “glee” next. Go here to see Miss Grace and Kellee’s versions of “Abundant” and “Urgent”.

    I like it (I saw it earlier today, and thought in my head “I like it,” but now here’s a comment: I like it)

    What an ironic pairing that you both came up with citrus. I love it. :D

    Played a game recently that really highlights people’s interpretation of words. It is called Apples to Apples. There are two types of cards. The first type (green cards) has a conceptual adjective on them like abundant, urgent, chunky, lush, etc. The second type of card (red cards) has a noun on it, that can be just about anything.

    Each person in the game is dealt seven red cards which they keep secret from the other players. One person is then elected to start as the judge. This person turns over the top green card and sets it on the table face up. Each of the remaining players have to select one of their red cards that best typifies the word on the green card in the middle of the table. Once they have selected a card they place it face down next to the green card. When all of the players (not including the judge) have placed a card the judge picks up the red cards, mixes them up, and then slowly places them one at a time face up in the middle of the table.

    This is where the game gets fun. As the cards are laid down the group gets to argue about which red card is the best example of the green card. After a couple of drinks amongst good friends the lobbying portion of the game becomes very animated. The judge then decides which red card is indeed the best. The person who played that red card gets the green card. Each player draws another red card to get back up to seven. The role of judge passes to the left goes around the table systematically as the game goes along.

    The first person to 7 green cards wins the game.
