For this weeks constellation lecture we were all asked to select an piece or an artifact that suggests an idea or what meaning it may have behind it. Some will be selected and discussed about these ideas.

I looking at the Jackson Pollock piece from 1952 and I think that this piece could express the idea a distressed mind. Although very abstract and beautiful, I am unsure of the idea behind this piece and think it would be very interesting to discuss any thoughts about the meaning of the painting in class with my peers.

I do know that Jackson Pollock began to number his painting through the years rather then naming them. This is one of his earlier pieces.
