The first meeting yesterday was so interesting! So refreshing for all of us to have a full day where the conversation in the room was mainly about art and creativity, that of course did not left out the environment, social issues, life and death, fear, visions, sensitivity, audience, technology, science, cosmology, biodiversity, trades, materialism, internet addiction… what is not related to the creative process?
We shared our own ways of making art, described our creative process, our concerns about the reality we are living in, our vision for the future, our knowledge, our views, the food and drinks we brought… and few of us ended the evening around the fire in my backyard for the last sparkly memories of the contents of our conversations. What a wonderful way to incise the memory… isn’t memories what we bring in our grave?
It was also so intriguing to see the different phases of the day. I saw at least 3 waves of energetic mood, in a kind of crescendo. Fantastic to watch and to be part of! Like a human composition made by creative diversity and similarity. Sweeeet!
I want to share who were the artists involved in these first fertile art conversation and also I will post, with their permission, some of the audio of our conversation because I don’t want to re-interpret their meanings but their contest is inspiring to hear . You can check those on the upcoming post entitled ‘First Conversation Recordings’.
