As the MA draws to a close[ ‘the time has come, the walrus said.’] I have been working diligently on my FMP presentation. One thing that I found very interesting, is that there are changes and developments on the project even after the exhibition is done. I have reconsidered the order of the images and made a few changes for the assignment compared to the exhibition. Some titles have also changed. Writing the CRoP really made me re-evelute a lot of things. My idea of how the exhibition would go, to how it actually went, is eye-opening, I discovered there is approach even within approach or as Gödel proved; there are multiple infinities.
I can only presume that any project is a living breathing entity and can only approach completion and will never reach that absolute while the artist is alive or beyond. This once again makes me cheer and embrace Gödel’s Incompleteness Theorem that proves there is no closure or absolute in anything; there is only a tendency. I am happy to say, that I am done with absolutes in work and play, and as long as I can approach my dream, enjoy the tendencies of the dream I will have achieved a goal. This leaves the artist with options, a place to go. I began the MA with abstraction, that was deaf and mute, and ended with abstraction that has my own voice. That’s the abstract of it.!
“Is the journey hard? Yes, till the very end. Will it take long? All day and all night my friend.” -unknown.
