In this video David Hockney meditates on the concept of seeing. Of depicting spring, of Picasso’s owl that thrills us, of Photoshop and of comparing seat belts and bondage.
David Hockney was invited to the launch of Photoshop in Silicon Valley because of his interest in photography. Photoshop has made a lot of magazines look similar and more and more boring, he says. There is more owlness in Picasso’s owl than in a stuffed owl because it is an account of a human being looking on an owl.
