As a synesthete, I recognize deep patterns in the spoken language. And, But and Not are conjunctions that join two or more thoughts. Each of these images has a vertical axis that divides the energy, the motion, and the action that I perceive in each of these three ordinary words used throughout our normal daily lives.
And
The two thoughts on either side of this word are often very much alike and connected. Girls AND boys. Cars AND trucks.
But
The thoughts connected by this word are often opposed or dissimilar. This piece uses two very different directions, energies and colors on each side of the axis. I love cold weather BUT want to go to the Caribbean .
Not
The left side is softly rounded while the right side is rectilinear. Round is not square. Elephants are NOT Donkeys.
