Artists Throwing Rocks

Whilst in the states a few months ago, DC artist Kendall Nordin asked me "what is it like to make work and send it out into the world?" This enquiry into the creative process formed the bases her video 'Artists Throwing Rocks', in which artists choose a body of water and a rock/s as visual metaphors to illustrate the action of letting your work go. The resulting video is poetically filmed and as an artist I found that it explored a complex range of emotional relationships to art making. Watching it again this morning it reminded me of the ability of visual art to speak in ways that no other medium can.
