Some notes

Do I create meaning by contextualising and exploring work I’ve made in written form or by having imaginary conversations with someone who is asking questions about the work? Am I adding something new or created to the work or am I unearthing, excavating not only context but also meaning that is already here just hidden?

Do I trace my original thoughts, or better impressions when making or perceiving a work back to arrive at some pure intention or meaning even though I can never be sure if it is indeed the initial layer or whether it was again created? By tracing back these steps it feels as if there is a threshold where perception ends and the transcendental starts. Somehow it seems difficult to be aware of whether that threshold has been traversed.
