I wanted to tittle it distraction too but looking at Pramod's post, I decided to keep it untittled..... may be you can suggest an apt tittle ? I am not sure what attracts me to create images like these, is it that am attracted towards chaotic patterns ? There must be some ways to explain this.....

title : naked.
I love the chaos and yet "peaceful at self" mood in here.

this image is best titled as untitled...why are we photographers always titling an image and making the viewer think in only one way ?why dont we leave the job to the viewer to decide and coming with his own version to enjoy the image his way?...like painters and sculptures do....this image reminds me of Art Wolf's red shrine and branches with snow image...

Praveen, for certain images, it becomes so difficult to explain the reason behind the creation with words. I agree with your thoughts of leaving the viewers mind to interpret it in just any way. On the other hand we also create images from inspirations, emotional outburst or some logic working in our mind. Perhaps we try to convey those thoughts through a tittle, but it is not necessary that the viewer has to agree to it all the time, I think the artist also needs to respect the views of the viewer and accept his / her thoughts. I still have not been able to find out a suitable reason why complexities like these attract my mind so much, what is the human psychology working behind this ? I was not looking to create an image which displayed chaos or any order in chaos, no photographic inspirations behind the making of this image. At times perhaps its better not to find an answer :-), as you often say, follow the heart.

i have always called them art of clutter. however, you don't like to use the word clutter :) i love such creations.

- black - mind- white - tree -

but : "untitled" best suits this as Praveen says. Leave it to the viewer Nilanjan.

How about `Synapses' ?

Commentby AratiRao on Thu Oct 13, 2011 10:08 am

the first thought that came to my mind when i saw this image was "Iterations." it looks as if One Line of Thought was followed some distance, then the thinker came back to the main thought to follow another path :) And some lines of thought seem stronger than others! Hence Iterations.

Hi Nilanjan,
To me it looks as dancing forms. Neurons as put by Nevil is a nice reflection. And "dead tree which grows in mind" wow! how apt. And yes title is not always necessary. Some images like this one do their work through their suggestiveness like "koans" of zen masters. A mind dice thrown amidts pupils to hone their reflective selves. This one is a koan. To each one his or her own.
Thanks for sharing

I initially thought (looking at the thumbnail) its a pattern in a dead leaf... but the whole tree... wow! Fractals is appropriate then :)
Wonderful image sir!

Dead Tree which grows in mind describes it the best I guess :-)
