So where were I? Right...
So what kind of behavior is it that I respect and approve of? What kind of qualities do I admire in others?
I made a list of qualities I appreciate in others. (Thinking I should probably work on improving my own qualities a bit...) I ended up with a list with words like integrity, love, compassion, honesty, humility, kindness, joy. How would I express these things visually?
As I was looking into the meaning of the word integrity I stumbled on the frase "core set of values" that got stuck in my head. What does it mean to have an inner core? What would an inner core look like? I started associating core with seed, went on to pod, and from there to bundle and shrine. Why not make bundles to celebrate the good in people? Bundles representing some of the qualities I admire and appreciate in others.
Next question! What are these bundles going to look like? I browsed through my sketchbooks and found something I tossed down when I visited the Museum of Etnography a few weeks before Christmas. There was an exhibition showing Aboriginal Art from Australia. On one of the paintings had these objects or symbols that cought my eye. Maybe some of my friends in Oz knows what it is? Of course I don't remember the name of the artist so if anyone can help me with that I would be very greatful as well.
Here´s another sketch/doodle I made at work one day. Now I'm very eager to get to work in fiber and stitches. :-)
Take it Further!
