Idea Relation

Story and Images by Maggie Wehri

Fisher student Maggie Wehri explores the fusion of art and business through her featured artwork on Fisher campus TV screens

There’s a point of intention when a tool touches its designated surface. Whether it is realized or not, that intention is a derivative of an idea. Through the ink of a pen or the lead of a pencil, the essence of an implement facilitates a defining moment that is often overlooked.

A sense of liberation is achieved when an idea is transcribed into the physical world. This idea is no longer just a thought, but has been communicated into a versatile format. Letters, lines, figures and symbols; these characters are elements that transfer an idea.

Ideas can describe a clear purpose or function. Ideas can illustrate an ambiguous expression or abstraction. Ideas can be one or lots of many things, but all ideas contain one common quality. Ideas evolve from human perception, an experience by which we are bound.

Tools start a conversation between one’s understanding and sensory information. Although the surrounding environment shapes this awareness, consciousness can extend past what is obvious and inside what is hidden.

In the instance of art and business, these fields do not surfacely seem related. Describing this connection requires an understanding of their origins: a beginning that was once discovered through a mere idea.

These fields are ideas. These ideas are fields. All fields are ideas: they’re just applied differently.
