Ok, I have to trumpet my own horn for a just a second- I just made my first video!! I cannot begin to describe how stoked I am about this. Yes, there are some things I need to get better at. You always have to keep learning. But I don’t think I did too bad, for my first time. 🙂 What do you think?
There something about words and the way that they’re written that fascinates me. Words are symbols that we ascribe meaning to, in order to communicate. By themselves, words are simply combinations of lines and curves. But given meaning, we are able to make combinations that communicate ideas, build relationships, and form the foundation of civilizations.
In this piece, I used calligraphy to create what I had pictured in my mind- a river of words and meaning. Perhaps that meaning is negative, perhaps positive, but really it is a combination of the two. Sifting through the mess to find the truth underneath is difficult and takes skill and practice, but it’s essential to try.
