Digging Deeper

The net has been flung too wide and I need to focus on exactly what I am trying to catch and why.  Sounds easy, but I feel as if I have been on a silent retreat since I read this, trying to leave the space for the answer to float to the surface.

Am I starting at the beginning and letting chance play its part, or at the end and making the evidence fit the ‘crime’.  Is it about process and the decisions, perceived or otherwise on this journey?

Is it possible to make work without intention, or is intention always lurking in the murky waters?  If it is lurking, by what means could I, do I access this intention?  What is the actual intention?  If there is no perceived intention, is it possible for others to imbue such on the work?  A letting go of outcome, only a need to release.

I talk of emotional  connection with the work, with the viewer, which implies an intention, yet if it exists, it is within the forth dimension, wordless.  If there are no words, how do I describe what happens?

So what is driving the work if not intention, if not wordless communication?  How do I access this ‘essence’ and direct to the outcome I am questing, if in fact this is the purpose?  If it isn’t, what is?

Am I any nearer the true question?  Not sure.  Maybe a mind map to help clarify.  More digging.
