LUMIA: DID YOU SAY PAINTING?

 

In the early years of Lumia trying to find it’s own niche in the fine art world, Thomas Wilfred who discovered and promoted Lumia, put forth the notion of Lumia being a form of ‘animated painting.’ Animated – definitely. But the concept of an animated painting gives one a moment of pause. Can a “painting” be animated and still be a painting? Don’t know how many people lost sleep over that; but when they finally got to sleep, maybe they dreamed of Lumia instead of sheep.
