38/365 – Start From Where You Are.
I need to be able to count first of all on myself when looking for an idea. I need to feel that trust and energy that will eventually create something, that will let the unconsciousness of my creativity to emerge. I then seek for others’ help and support, without which great thing just can’t happen. I usually start from where I am and that’s probably the reason why I have so many pictures of my feet.
I once started a project of photos of my feet in hotel rooms, which was mainly to explore the patterns of those floors, but also a way to find the connection between one myself which was traveling and moving and not really living the hotel rooms and the other myself, the one that’s grounded and lives connected to the earth.
Ideating is in the middle of these feelings: it is for me in the process of flying high with our minds and finding the point of view that wasn’t explored yet and at the same time being capable of staying connected with our source and with the concreteness of life.
I believe I like to look down at my feet to feel I am connected and I can’t then take the risk to leave that certainty to fly higher and without limits. That’s one place to start from, exactly from where we are.
