A wanderer follows the path of indeterminacy– to allow, listen to hunches, daydream, flow, immerse, imagine, ramble, uncover, look, brainstorm, investigate, get lost, be in the moment, be idle, and play.
John Cage once described writing music as “…purposeless play…This play, however, is an affirmation of life–not an attempt to bring order out of chaos nor to suggest improvements in creation, but simply a way of waking up to the very life we’re living, which is so excellent once one gets one’s mind and one’s desires out of its way and lets it act on its own accord”. Similarly, another approach to making art is through purposeless play. To create art for its own sake. To create without knowing the final image.
Both Faye and Poeleen embody the energy of “Play-Do” by choosing to create from a more intuitive, spontaneous and playful approach. To be led by their wonderings —exploring, experimenting, allowing and making room for the unexpected. In the process, they discover, rediscover and unearth new worlds, formations and landscapes to traverse even if only in their minds.
