My theory is about moments, moments of impact. My theory is that these moments of impact, these flashes of high intensity that completely turn our lives upside down actually end up defining who we are. The thing is each one of us is the sum total of every moment that we’ve ever experienced with all the people we’ve ever known. And it’s these moments that become our history. Like our own personal greatest hits of memories that we play and replay in our minds over and over again.
I’ve had the profound pleasure of working for two days in the studio with Maser Films on a lovely little passion project about our Cyntar. The footage is a beautiful montage of glass, steel, plaster and the pains of creation. We will even be including a montage of dropping a glass torso on slow motion film! woohoo! I feel profoundly blessed to have created work with these three amazingly talented men!
I have devoted 30 years of research to how creative people live and work, to make more understandable the mysterious process by which they come up with new ideas and new things. If I had to express in one word what makes their personalities different from others, it’s complexity. They show tendencies of thought and action that in most people are segregated. They contain contradictory extremes; instead of being an individual, each of them is a multitude.
