but I’m also slightly conflicted as its art week in NYC and everyone is out and about at the Armoury, Scope and Spring Break fairs, and I’m home cutting stencils.
*This scenario makes me question my intentions. On the one hand it matters that I make work which is fragile and visibly disappears into its environment and mostly I hope for just one person to deeply enter into thinking about the piece. On the other hand I’m here to expand my career so I need the crowds, need the ‘right people’ to come. Therefore there is no harmony between the philosophy of the work – creating works that might be overlooked, and the pragmatism of arts business – look at me look at me.
