not knowing

When I named my first piece "the 3 pigs", I thought I was off on a theme for my work: children's nursery rhymes, or such material. I realize that the aspect of "children" as it relates to fun is clearly key in what I do. But by saying it was nursery rhyme related, I now feel I was narrowing my exploration too soon. At this stage I want to explore color and the materials in a wide open mind frame. I need to write this down to remind myself of the importance of "not knowing".

  1. uh.. the importance of not knowing? Maybe the reference- "The Women Who Knew Too Much-Hitchcock and Feminist Theory" by Tinia Modleski- is connected? Or is the point...not have things spin out of control learn intuitvely?
