I haven't stopped playing with it since I made it! 💫🌪💥🌪💫 Often we see the object...and that's what we fixate on. However, all objects have interactions, and THAT right there is the EXPERIENCE. It's always about that. You see the object or you hold the object but it's not the objects physical properties that are most intriguing, it's the reaction...the emotion it elicits...that abstract tingling sense of what it is to be alive. THAT is what's most intriguing. Initially I just wanted the object...wanted to make it...and I did...and was pleased with my work. As I finished though, having built a relationship with this object through its creation, I felt more attached to the experience of the object than the object itself. That's not always the case in my art making. At first I couldn't bring myself to scramble it up. I needed to document it before I could do that! But that couldn't happen quick enough. It called to me and I had to have my wife take this quick video because I just couldn't wait anymore. I had invested myself in the piece and built a strong emotional component to our interaction. That's basically the goal for me as an artist...for many artists I would imagine...to create that experience for others. For me, the best art is something that continually draws me in. It finds a way to keep presenting something new to me. It furthers our engagement. It's an ongoing interaction...not just an object in your living space. Hopefully that's something that my ongoing work does for you! More to come on this idea for sure.
