It's Friday evening and I've opted out of drinks with friends in order to have some quiet time. I'm dismantling my favourite space; taking pictures down from the walls, clearing books from shelves and ornaments from the window sills. I have boxed up my paints and my collage things. I've put my favourite books on to the dining table but I can't decide which is the 'leave here' pile and which is the 'pack in the suitcase' pile. I'm split down the middle and next week is a pile of farewells and question marks. I've been welling up all afternoon. At least I get to play in Brooklyn for a few days in between the tearing down and the rebuilding.
I have some thoughts about leaving this beautiful city but I'll wait till I have my films developed, that way I can show you what I'll miss. What I'm starting to miss already. And who.
But here, apropo of nothing, are some collages I made yesterday in Karine's studio. They're not much but they did involve the breaking down of one form and the creation of a new one. And that's a start.
