I’m still being quite guarded about sharing full details of H but this is not because I am uncertain of the direction in which this is heading. It’s just that I know that the progress on this is not yet that visually exciting to see. For me, the process of art making is very long and often tedious. The idea of art being a quick and painless process does not appeal to me. I’m here for the long haul. I have ideas and directions that take months to experiment with and the possibility that any one of these ideas will fail does not bother me. It is always better to have tried something once and followed it all the way to its logical conclusion than to not try at all.
As artists it is our duty to always be pushing the boundaries of what is considered the norm and not falling into pigeonholes or boxes created by others. I would be failing in this duty if I didn’t spend as much time as I could expanding on my methods, research, and concepts. Investing all my time on H just to see where it leads is exciting. I don’t see it as potential time wasted, instead it is time invested in experimenting with what is possible.
