Performance…

I saw this on my daughters desk a few months ago, liked the light and thought it would make a nice photograph, because it seemed like he was trying to say something.

I was thinking today about performance.  Not just as in acting, but as in providing a skill and finished product, for a fee on a repeated basis.  I think that there are times when every artist who is living off their work feels much like this little wind up puppy.  I want to make something new, creative, different.  But all that’s asked of me is to do the same trick, again and again.  I think, if you can get past the mind numbing repetitiveness of some of the process, it can still bring a smile, to see the reaction to the finished product.  Because it’s that connection, at the core of the process, that creates the moment that brings a twinge of a smile, as a memory is triggered.  And really, if I get that, you can wind me up any time.
