Short reflection on a reflection

mei 5th, 2009

Michael Pinchbeck wrote a reflection on Beginning, Middle, End. This is one of his remarks:

Working with other artists, I have learned how to express myself and respond to feedback I was not used to receiving in new ways. Sometimes it was, as Adrian Heathfield describes post-event writing, a beautiful catastrophe of misunderstanding. We wrote letters to each other in our own languages, in our own handwriting. As Mole Wetherell says, the thing with letters is, by the time they arrive the whole world has changed around you.

The idea that, when time goes by and your letter is on it’s way to it’s receiver, the world around you changes, appeals to me. You get the time to reflect on your own idea before someone else interferes. When finally the answer comes you to tend to be less defensive in a way. You rather try to construct new ideas from your own letter, the letter of the other and your own refelction. This is one of the reasons Joris Weijdom and I started our conversation.

My way of working with Michael, often via Skype, Youtube and email, was sometimes difficult, but it builds in a certain patience as well. A patience very well needed in a creative making process, certainly in one where more people are involved. Time always seems to be short, being forced to take my time, is something I would prefer to build in to my future processes.
