i know that it has been some time since my last posting and a lot of things have been happening since my summer residency at the Torpedo Factory Art Center(http://torpedofactory.org). the most important fact was that after the residency program ended, i needed to cocoon(see glossary) a bit and take the time to work in my new space organizing my studio and home life which i sort of put off on the back burner during my residency. i am cocooning in a new space which is close to the place where i teach classes and trying to get the feel of the new space. the most challenging aspect of the new space is that it is completely withOUT internet and i have had to make many adjustments to learn how to work within a space where the web is not as accessible, besides the smartphone to receive emails or telephone calls until now. finally, after some time i have found a way to utilize the web and wifi when at work or in the cafes of the area. living and working at home (cocooning) withOUT the web is sort of refreshing and takes me back to the days when technology did not have such a hold on the artist’s mind and we could focus more on the creativity from within without regards to what happened on the world wide web.
now there are many new ways to visualize your artistic endeavors through social media.
i guess you could consider me “old school” where i like to keep a delicate balance between the artistic side of my work and the use of modern technology to promote it.
i have been doing a couple of juried shows and working on some new project both online and off. welcome me back to the web world of bloggers and artists at heart and geeks. sometime, we all need to step back and cocoon a bit to understand what is really important to us and focus, before continuing on the road or direction which we have chosen. i am getting back into the groove of posting more often…..
