Where Do You Get Your Ideas?: Harnessing Inspiration Through Habit
“Habit will sustain you whether you're inspired or not. Habit will help you finish and polish your stories. Inspiration won't. Habit is persistence in practice.”
― Octavia Butler
Participants will be led through a series of exercises aimed at stimulating ideas and forming habits which can be used to inspire their own work. Some of these rituals include stream of consciousness sketching, image gathering, media osmosis, and naming pieces before they exist. In addition, various practical techniques conducive to experimentation will be demonstrated by the artist.
