We were discussing
Jorge Luis Borges' work, Borges y Yo, in Spanish today.
In a roundabout way, we started talking about whether the artist is reflected in the work, and how the reader can (kind of) get to know the writer simply by reading and interpreting his work. I thought it was very interesting, and I enjoyed it immensely.
Do you see yourself in your work? Do you try to express yourself through your work, so people can know you? My teacher used the words,
'Algunos tiempos, pienso el autor pone su alma en sus obras.'
Or something like that.
Anyway, I feel like I sometimes make work to express myself, but mostly to express what I see of others and the world.
What and/or who do you think I am when you look at my work?
I'm feeling philosophic. I eagerly await your replies! I'd love to hear your opinions, no matter the type of your work.
Some awesome works I've found lately:
