the drip is what is interesting. overloaded excessive uncontained but on a path bulging falling ...dripping
not so much the drop. the point of contact but the liminal between overflow and death.
running in tandem is the mind / action dilemma. of a stimulus creating an an uncontrollable reaction.
been reading simone de beavoir and diamond sutra to try to have a clearer perspective.
but i think there is a bridge. a meeting point of the two trajectories.

The artworks made at New Mill are very much determined by a period and context specific spirit. The do-it-yourself process of constructing objects from odds and ends demonstrates the value of conceiving art as a model of engagement with the world, speaking not only with things but also through things. Through transformation and reinvention, the works effect a temporalisation of objects that articulates new forms, placing emphasis on the 'act' rather than on the finished 'product', seeking to dematerialise the art object as a commodity.
prepping at new mill. walked in circular direction to create space for the barley stack fire next weekend.
