I didn’t think I had time to get to this work but once I started cutting and pasting, other urgent matters seemed to melt away. I’ve never done this exercise and really enjoyed it and can see loads of potential. The black and white make it seem very confident. I started, with just wavy shapes; then returned to the image of black dress I wrote of last week; and by the seventh sample I combined lots of these ideas. I could have continued all evening. I know I can use this as a lure to ‘showing up’. I also began reflecting in my journal on the process and trying to figure out how I can use the extended square as a metaphor for other areas of the work I do.
