I’ve got so many questions to answer. I really want to create images that have a place and start a conversation or spark imagination.I believe storytelling, while a buzzword right now, is one of the most primitive and deep-rooted methods of interpersonal connection. All of my work to this point has been devoid of people and devoid of narrative. They both frighten me because I feel that I’ll somehow mishandle one or both of them. What if I minimize the value of a person by making them a spectacle? What if I try to tell a story and completely miss the point? I sat down with myself tonight and just started writing down my questions, the advice I’ve been given and some of my goals. It’s at least a start. As for now, these questions don’t have answers. I know I won’t be able to answer them myself, but I really respect my mentor for this semester and am very excited for our first meeting on Wednesday. I’m going to ask him to assign me a few projects to hopefully kick start some other ideas. Not sure what is next, but I know I’ve really got to get out of my manicured obvious ideas and out into humanity where it is dirty and ugly and terrifying and where we find the unexpected.
