Weekly Vision meeting Dec 3:
Ma (間) is a Japanese word which can be roughly translated as "gap", "space", "pause" or "the space between two structural parts."The spatial concept is experienced progressively through intervals of spatial designation. In Japanese, ma, the word for space, suggests interval. It is best described as a consciousness of place, not in the sense of an enclosed three-dimensional entity, but rather the simultaneous awareness of form and non-form deriving from an intensification of vision.
Ma has also been described as "an emptiness full of possibilities, like a promise yet to be fulfilled", and as "the silence between the notes which make the music" Read more

Some Inspiration on the Art of Imperfection:
"...the seed for your next art work lies embedded in the imperfections of your current piece. Such imperfections (or mistakes, if you’re feeling particularly depressed about them today) are your guides - valuable, reliable, objective, non-judgemental guides - to matters you need to reconsider or develop further.
If you think good work is somehow synonymous with perfect work, you are headed for big trouble.
Art is human; error is human; ergo, art is error.
Imperfection is not only a common ingredient in art, but very likely an essential ingredient.
To require perfection is to invite paralysis.
You make good work by (among other things) making lots of work that isn’t very good, and gradually weeding out the parts that aren’t good, the parts that aren’t yours. It’s called feedback, and it’s the most direct route to learning about your own vision." -From the book Art and Fear by David Bales and Ted Orland:
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
This month we will oscillate our attention between micro/ macro, inside/ outside, doing/ not doing, the present and the future.
