week 36: allow the idea to find you

Posted on September 14, 2012 by aks

Sometimes I think creativity is magic;  it’s not a matter of finding an idea, but allowing the idea to find you.

― Maya Lin


I have been pre-occupied lately thinking about a sculptural project for our garden and wondering where the source for ideas for it will come from — which is why I find this quote so inspiring. Overall I am feeling rather disoriented but in a healthy kind of way (which happily reminds me of this commencement speech by Kirk Varnedoe from an earlier post).

Below are sketches, in collaboration with Adrien Segal, an amazingly talented woodworker and artist and creator of images #01 & 02 below. I feel really lucky to know her and am excited to see what we can build together.  Here is a link to her work.
