Purim (aka Jewish Halloween) is the most intriguing psychological experiment that takes place here every year.
Think about it, we all wear costumes and masks just to get free and bring our real selves to the world without filters and protections.
If we experience this liberation, joy and lightheartedness … Why isn’t every day Purim?!
I will leave the personal interpretation of filters and masks to each and every one of you, but it turns out that even with regard to fashion and design, most of us prefer our reality monotonous – yes / no, black / white.
It’s not clear when the colors disappeared from the world, but the colorful environment seems to be graying up.
The clothes we wear, the furniture we choose, the cars, all in gray monochromatic colors.
Which of you remembers the green refrigerator he had in the kitchen as a child? The pink toilet and the brown ceramic tiles in the shower? What about that orange table in the dining room?
There are those who would say that in a world saturated with stimuli and trending fashions, we are all looking to create confidence and tone down the "visual noise", but in my opinion we have become conservatives. Refraining from facing criticism and the spirit of change.
In honor of Purim, I decided for the first time to present my world through a filter, to remind us that there are more than 50 shades of gray.
Drama and contrast are important elements, but they should come in the right dosages.
By the way, if you’re more into black and white, make the classic choice interesting and unique. Life is too short to wear boring clothes ;-)
So let us all have a happy, colorful and fun holiday!
… And if we go back to psychology for a moment, remember that love begins where the masks go down.
