A polished creative project often starts with a big mess. In my experience, I have to get a lot of ideas out there, and only after I've done that, edit, select, and sequence to make the final product. In this case, this is a whiteboard where I'm working out how to present my past work and proposed future work for an artist fellowship at an NYC based organization which looks at how the explosion of data and technology to exploit that data is influencing our society. The final product will be a new portfolio page, a summary of a project proposal , a full length project proposal, a cover letter, and a resume. If I am accepted to the fellowship, this will fund several polished pieces (which of course will be prefaced by a lot of messiness). Pardon my French when I say, "Viva la mess!"
