A Clearing of Intents


Point No Point


What’s the point here? A multiplicity of perspectives doesn’t allow for restful contemplation from a single vantage point. The power of group- think is not in its collective wisdom but in its ability to maintain blind spots of intent, while in the midst of a creative, transformative process. Being pre-occupied in this way does not correlate to a willed ignorance but to a clearing of space for things to happen before they are known.

So what’s the point here? The point is, that nothing is not nothing, and that in nothingness there is contained a métier. (with a nod to Wallace Stevens)
