Ideas about new creative work centred on all working on a piece simultaneously in contrast to working on a piece individually one after the other. Having learned more about each other’s ways of working it seems we feel more confident about combining creative impulses, pooling all our skills to work on one piece.
We talked about wider issues of creative discipline, time constraints and the problems of concentration. We all share this impulse to represent and interpret our experiences though it is manifest differently in each of us. We share certain concerns like preciousness, responsibility to do something justifiable and complimentary to the piece currently being worked on. Some pieces had been easier to find a way into, or get to know. Others have proved more difficult and more demanding but may have been more rewarding.
