Here we go… this seemed a good idea when we planned it, but perhaps I’m finally ready to face up to some harsh truths…
Alice is feeling a shift in direction and has been exploring the idea of intention for her work. This sparks a discussion about the role of intention in art-making. Do we need it? Do we have to decide it right from the start? Or can we find it as we go?
We explore the pros and cons of intention in a discussion that ranges from the compositions of an art-making chimpanzee to Steve Jobs’ wise words about how we can connect the dots.
We also discuss the super practical topic of studio flooring with a few different suggestions for comfort and ways to preserve your floor from paint, ponder the challenges of teaching art workshops and reveal our thoughts about fancy dress (Gold star if you can guess which one of us has never ever worn a fancy dress costume!)
