  • a meditation
  • a daily practice
  • an improvisational score
  • an attempt at undersatnding the sublime
  • an attempt at creating the sublime
  • a visualization of subconscious biases
  • order and disorder
  • a ouija board with no board
  • respect for the unintentional
  • intentional non-intention
  • a paradox
  • research in physicality and mark making
  • a remnant

 

Why? 

  • to avoid having any ideas, and thereby avoiding contamination of natural beauty by the ego
  • to fight the desire to control
  • to search for control inside the structure of the body itself (control exclusively through internal reference points)
  • to permit the influence of chaos
  • to allow order to mingle with disorder
  • to nurture imagination and physical practice
  • to observe if my precision and knowledge of the internal develop over the length of this project
  • to develop a basic action that can be elaborated on by meditation, breath, or phyisical practice
  • to explore the relationship between art image and artistic process
  • “first thought best thought”: the point is the beginning, it is the first thought, repeated
