Tethered to Ideas

Posted on: Saturday, March 02, 2013

Shimenawa (literally "enclosing rope") are lengths of braided rice straw rope 
used for ritual purification in the Shinto religion

Sometimes I feel as if I am tethered to ideas that I just cannot let go of. Whether as links to the past or creative concepts that I have yet to pursue, I am a bit stubborn about holding on to something once I deem it worthy of investigation and possible inclusion in a project.

There comes a point, though, when a long queue of ideas seems to almost hinder any process. This happens sometimes when I am working with fiber and recycled materials that really have a life (history) of their own and properties that want to dictate a certain outcome.
