I believe in the body as an expressive medium. I believe in the infinite possibilities of living creatively, and in the effort to give meaning to life lived through the body.
I am asking myself how can i move in creative ways today? Where could i go and how might I need to move to see with fresh eyes and think outside of any constructs that have been handed to me. Is art making something we do, or is it a place to visit?
These are moving questions. They are not meant to be automatically answered. The answers are best given as spontaneous expression. In what we call dance. In what we call art or sometimes in the joy of cooking for others.
Following instinct and intuition as a practice becomes part of the art making process. What are your moving questions for today?
