Sometimes I have a lot to share with the world: look at what I am doing, look at what my friends are doing, look at all the amazing stuff people all over the world are doing in the name of art from recycled materials! And then sometimes I am overwhelmed by all the stuff and question why I participate in creating more stuff, even if it is stuff made from stuff that is otherwise destined for the landfill. Yeah, that is how I have been feeling for awhile, the post-show let down that turns into an existential depression. My studio and my garage are filled with all this stuff, some of it potentially useful for some future project, but the struggle to actually start another project feels futile right now. It is like I have lost my voice, and while searching realize there is nothing left to say.
But the change in seasons feels so refreshing, I always feel like fall is filled with promise. So I promise to keep on admiring all of the amazing folks who make art from recycled materials, seeking out new sources of inspiration while I continue to search and discover more ways to Make Art Not Waste! love, etc Ruby
