Explain the Real-ness of it
Let things change and don't worry
I have created a pdf of the original page here, with out my marks. Feel Free to use it if you like. Or not. PDF 9 stray doodles
Me, I like to just hold things in my mind, save paper. Let it brew, renew.
Direct Video LInk In case you want that.
Talking... audio-mapping idea
And then a little of what I want to call OverDoing. (to the left here)
I know I am talking a lot today. You should be able to click on audio and then on the picture to the left to enlarge it while listening.
I look at all of what I do as a series, no matter what medium. It is just one thing becoming another, the constant change, caught in steps.
I will continue with figure # 4 for now. And do a bit of what I call "Storming", (aka brain storming) on paper, and talking, for a May Stray, without looking back at any of this. I like to break free at one point and let the initial ideas take hold in my mind without trying to replicate or trace what has taken place. The storm is already brewing, and storms are actually hard to pin down exactly, right?, as to what the result might be. You just ride it out.
I have used #4 as a base, a thought base, before... but rather than back track, let's see what happens this time. In real time.
A more complete version of this was posted on Instagram yesterday. It's me as a path. You might use me as that.
I will spend the next few weeks working on a May Stray. Just to be birthing something, while continuing to catch thoughts about catching thoughts. Part one will end at the end of this month...which was my original thought. I was going to drag it out through June but I really want to move on to more focused technique/ making . Needing to fit the next 8 parts of the series into a time period ending with my 69th birthday month, in February. Because I will be somewhere else by then, if even in my mind. And I want to get through it. Or let it all move through me. To you.
