I have to admit to myself today that I’m really struggling with this project and where to go. I feel really shaky, aimless, and frustrated right now. I have a heavy sense of insecurity about the work that’s making me really anxious and nervous about the work. I’m not enjoying myself with this work and I know it. I’ve been sitting in my office staring at these two plaster casts that I’ve done so far, wondering where to go with them. Looking at these plaster casts, I know that they’ re just not substantial enough on their own; somehow they have to be transformed into something else, but I don’t know what that is. I worry that they look too traditional and antiquated, two qualities that I strongly want to avoid.
