Lately, I have found myself giving more time to chewing on larger questions.
What is the meaning of Life? How can we be present?
How should we spend our time?
I do not think there is just one answer to these questions. I have also been thinking about my studio practice.
Why do I do this?
What does my work mean to me? What does my work mean to others?
I have spent time re-exploring previous work—the curious experience of looking an earlier self in the eyes.
Seeing who that person was, what they were thinking about, and also at the same time knowing where that person will go in years to come – years that now have already passed.
Who have I been up to now?
What do all of these moments, choices, acts, and creations look like when pockets have been emptied and all the little collected pieces of my life have been cast upon the table?
What does it mean?
And in this quiet, knowing space I can ask: Where do I want to go from here?
