The Power of Logos

Batman LogoWhen I included a 3D picture of Batman and Robin in the post titled “Sidewalk Art,” I suggested that the post had nothing to do with brain injury. After seeing a picture illustrating how the Batman logo has changed over time, I realized that there is definitely a connection between art and brain injury. Art — like writing, speaking, and dance — is a form of communication. Art may change the mood of its viewers or its viewers may interpret art differently depending on their mood.

As I examined the following picture, I realized that each logo in the picture caused me to feel a certain way about the Batman story line. I enjoyed seeing some logos more than others. If a logo has the power to communicate a feeling, and possibly prompt an action, then Street Art and other forms of art probably share that gift as well.
