WHY I have always been fascinated with the creative process. My concept was to explore the act of creating through play and discovery, while not focusing on a finished work. The work was a continuum. The final piece was finished at the end of the year - one final image.
TAKEAWAYS I found that I gave and received at the same time. My internal dialogue was: WHAT IF? ... YES AND. What came out of my hands gave me insights into who I am.
MY CREATIVE PROCESS, a snapshot in 365 days
I was inspired to begin creating art every day by a class I took: "Innovation and Creativity", taught by R.E.H. Gordon, at the School of the Art Institute Chicago.
SCOPE Make art for a minimum of 30 minutes every day for one year— show up and improvise. Recycled found and ready-made objects into art and strived to incorporate an element from the previous day forward to the next day.
