Beginning a 50 hour drawing…
There is order in the list. However this order has led to a kind of chaos and I am, once again, beginning to get overwhelmed with the abundance of material. I read one thing; it leads to another that in turn leads me to something else, so on and so forth. I am happy with this, it is a method of working that I am accustomed to; it is conducive to obtaining ideas. However these catalysts and the ideas themselves can get lost if they are not reined in once in a while. Therefore I have decided to gather my current notes and reflections together and find some coherence before it gets out of control.
From this point on I will be utilizing this space to document my journey and creative process. This process will mostly involve sifting through and highlighting key points and ideas that I believe will ultimately feed into the 50-hour drawing and will include practical experiments and work in progress.
The below list was created as a starting point. It is not static. It could become a drawing in itself…
Layers = Reworking, erasing, surfaces, revealing, hiding, time, process, re-discovery
Chance = Promise of unknown. In mystical terms chance is goddess of the sea…ever changing.
Recurrence/Reiteration = ‘It is a means of disordering and undoing’ (Fer: 2012: 71)
