I spent today thinking about some ideas around perfection/imperfection. I considered some of Sarah's ideas of obsolete repair ( of the cracks of the mud). Taking some of her found imperfections as a starting point, I began consideting it from my point of view and perspective in Cambridge.
Today, I began with writing the word perfect which turned to perfecked to perfucked to fucked. I enjoy a good word play so I turned the word into its anthesis.
Then, I began thinking about Sarah's site images of the cracks. While trying to find the images again, my internet failed..the site would not load..i thought this was another imperfect site so I drew an image of my screen...
Anyway, after that.. I eventually found some internet and sarah's blog post. I started thinking about cracks and sites. I started to think of my body as a site from a female cosmetic perspective.I recently had a cycling accident where I crashed into a wall and dented my nose. The experience made my hyper-aware of my own physicality. It made me feel reduced to a bunch of parts like a bicycle, an ikea table, a curry or a wall. I started to consider some of the physical 'cracks' i.e. blemishes, imperfections and dents this has caused my face.
Since this wall objectified me ( reminded me of my physicality and made me reduce myself to meagre parts)
,I think it could be interesting to humanise that wall...give it a make over with human makeup..try to cover its blemishes..I will visit that wall in the coming days and see what I can conjure up :).. I think this idea could feed into the unobtainable perfection sarah is interested in :)
Keen to know what your thoughts are! I like clay cracks alot :)
