Engaging Curiosity through Art and Story Telling with Patricia Paladines
Engaging Curiosity through Art and Story Telling with Patricia Paladines, photographer and Carl Safina, author: This program is for adults and teens
Program Presenters: Patricia Paladines and Carl Safina
We are born curious creatures. At birth, as soon as we open our eyes and all our senses kick in, we begin to question, what are we seeing, hearing, smelling, touching, tasting? Somewhere along our life’s journey we start to narrow our interests and begin to move through our world like racehorses wearing blinders; reducing our field of vision to stay focused on our tasks. We hear the songs of birds as we walk from our cars to the shops but how many of us realize the great diversity of birds that can be seen on Long Island?
Art, whether visual or auditory, holds the power to take our minds back to that primitive sense of wonder. Patricia Paladines and Carl Safina will discuss how they approach their work in photography and writing for engaging the buried sense of curiosity we all have. It can, and should, be considered our sixth sense. It’s a sense that sparks imagination, and imagination sparks action.
