A couple of days ago a parcel arrived for me from California. It was such a treat, especially as I was washing a double sleeping-bag, grape-treading style in the bath at the time. What a great reward to open up the box and find Jessica's journal:
So, how could I explore the inner and outer?
My first thought took me to anatomical diagrams from my studies. I wanted to look at the inner on a literal level visually, hence the heart.
Then I thought about the blood flow - in and out, just like inner and outer that I was exploring. Inspiration in, creativity out. The inner and outer are inextricably linked when we create. We are showing the world a little bit of our inner selves.
I drew the heart diagram on to tissue paper and then stuck it down with gel medium just to be sure I didn't mess up :)
