I'm re-prioritizing my materials list. I think I want to start working on a more intimate scale and I'm only going to use materials that have a strong appeal to me.
That said, anything I make from now on going to be girlier than shit:
clear and amber colored plastic
netting LED lights
I think I'll stop short of glitter - might be too kitchy.
I think that I'm just going to make piles, literal piles of texture from this stuff as a way of clearing out the mental funk of the last three years. I plan on being childlike and going back to square one, and it will be nice to not have outside feedback or deadlines. I want to be able to think clearly.
At the root of it all, I still do not know what material to work with. I want it all and until I know how to handle all of it in a satisfactory way, I'm not going to consign myself to making "anything" in particular.
Pretty little blobs. That's all most art amounts to anyway, dammit.
