Out of ink… Out of motivation…

The plan was very simple: finish printing my brochures for NYC. But now I’m out of ink and waiting for a delivery. Procrastination and lack of motivation have been brewing for a while and have now manifested themselves. I’m stuck wondering how best to proceed and had nothing else planned after the printing. This is a poor state of affairs to be in; no work and no motivation to work.

I’ve been resisting starting any new collages before I head out to NYC at the start of next month. The catch is that as a result I’ve dropped myself into a kind of mental limbo. This self-made void needs to be removed as quickly as possible to stop negativity setting in and to help make positive progress a reality.

Even my Walk/Listen/Respond project has fallen flat today. I was stuck out in the rain trying to find a suitable image and feeling the need to photograph something green in an area devoid of trees. The photograph reflects my frustration and really is desperate and pathetic in all sorts of ways.

Some days are sent to test patience and crush spirits. Thankfully these days are rare and I am strong enough not to let them hold me back. After a quick cuppa I’m trying to assemble some sort of constructive action plan so that I can get myself on track quickly. I have a collage that has been brewing in the back of my mind for a while now. For the sake of my own sanity, I must start this tomorrow…

Project: Walk/Listen/Respond

Rules: [1] Set MP3 to random album, [2] Walk, [3] When what you hear can be represented by what you see then take a photograph, [4] document your findings,  [5] no edits, no crops, no photoshop or alterations of any kind

Results:     Day 6: Jeff Buckley ‘Grace’ Lilac Wine

    • Thanks. It’s always a tricky mental balancing act when you work alone. I’ve already made positive progress since writing this post. Good things will come tomorrow x
