Abstract

As we mature, we learn to trade present possibilities for future benefits. Being able to assess future needs against present pleasures is hardwired into our consciousness, evolution and upbringing. However, during my MFA studies, I have realized that, for me, focusing too much on the future at the expense of the present has limitations. Planning involves seeing the possible manifestation of ideas, understanding how they stand in serial relationship, and realizing how they communicate with one another. Because I have stepped back from serialized planning, my drawings have moved towards spontaneous and reactionary processes, allowing the power of the present to dictate decisions. Throughout the program, I have learned that my strengths rely on play and innovation, which operate under more spontaneous parameters than conceptual planning.
