“To make” implies an end product. In the process of “making”, a process is initiated. When the process itself satiates, the finished piece is simply a by-product of the more meaningful stage. We don’t eat to make waste, but to sustain us and satisfy hunger or a craving. “Making” satisfies the hunger to create meaning and to appease a need to be productive, which for me feels like a deep-seated instinct rather than a learned behavior. My art is the end product of my addiction.
