Re: What's your intension as an artist?
well you're right about the artifice part.
Writing can be insightful, but in the end you need to make up your own mind devoid of the coins from that slot in your head.. the writing doesn't change the physical that was there all along.
At that point your personal words are only a means to organize visually the swirling mess in your head for use later--for me anyway.
