I keep forgetting about instagram! Catherine had her birthday so we had a super fun weekend and I've also been running around with people working on more collaborative projects. Like focusing more on digital media rather than fine art which isn't unheard for me I guess it just gives me this guilty feeling like I should be constantly painting or sculpting but I think there's a lot of merit in spending time with others vs. entombing yourself in a creative space. Thats something I actually want to tell you about. Its a concept around documentation vs. creating. Take a film project for example: we can write a screenplay, trick are friends into acting, and edit together a short film and that would be fun and great, but we could also take a camera, film hours of footage of our friends in a normal state, and end up with an unexpected documentary. I mean take This American Life. That podcast with Ira Glass and some other NPR people. I listened to their podcast S town & it was like a god damn southern mystery novel but it was real people, in real life, experiencing their actual happenings, there just happened to be a writer with a micro phone asking questions. I'm not sure what I want you to get from this but I just wanted to offer the theory that documenting the life and movement around you could have the potential to more satisfying or interesting than creating head cannon, random things that only you understand. I don't know. Hope all is well pals. Have a good day.
