' Into/Out of ' or 'balance . . . '

AV piece created at WEST project space, Blue Mountains, Australia.

'Into/Out of' or 'b a l a n c e . . .' takes from physical endurance practices a life lesson of leaning into the pain, into the posture; easing into what is difficult as well as out of what is rigid and no longer efficient or worth nurturing.

Theoretically this implies not giving-in to the 'always-already tragedy', and instead attempting to steadily remain in the in-between space, where we are constantly moving 'into' and 'out of' moments (in our minds and in real-physical-space).

Though this may be an impossibility, it yields momentary escape and thus possibility, until we fall again. But we seekers, always keep trying against all odds hoping to break through as underdogs – don't we?

APPLAUD THIS!

BY PAULA ALASAD ASBELL
@ VOL 4 ON MAR 09, 2013

You have to listen closely to catch what Paula Asbell was thinking when she titled this presentation "The Big Picture". However, it's easy to see how Paula keeps her mind open to creative impulses and how those inspriations lead her to create her art. Sometimes it's just the notion of "I don't want to waste this paint" that can lead to a new work.
