“Stop adulting so hard. Give yourself permission to play. A childlike faith in life is what will bring you more of it.”
Here is a glimpse into the evolution of a single idea. and perhaps the degree of childish i may be?
most difficult part about rebuilding new variations was lifting the enormous top rock into place, while simultaneously holding the spine with utmost precision and tension.. every time lifting the top rock, my arm would reach that point where i wasn’t sure if the muscle would continue or if the gravity would take the rock back down. but the adjustments (and risks) had to be done.
1st stage: 9 rocks. easy. too linear for my taste. bottom heavy (from a design perspective). document. destroy.
2: 9 rocks. far more difficult. kept the same bottom pattern (bottom 4 rocks). same middle pattern too (upper 4 minus the top), just with mostly different rocks than stage 1. wasn’t digging the middle as much… though in hindsight, it’s grown on me. document. destroy.
3: bleh. document. destroy. (starting to get dark) (should i continue?)
….fuck it, yes….!
4: 9 rocks again… same 4 lower rocks. 2 of 4 same middle rocks as stage 2. better design balance of the whole. good enough for today.. though still a bit blocky in the middle…
go home –> study photos..
fall in love with stage 4. but still consider switching a round one into the middle. why not? good question. . .
DAY 2 (stage 5 – 17 Nov 2015)
pleasantly surprised to find stage 4 still in balance… document a bit…
stage 5: 9 rocks. 8 of which are the same as stage 4. but i needed to see what the middle would look like with the round one i had in mind. (which is the same round rock just below the top in stage 1)
ZING! (heart becomes still once more) :))
