Many artists speak of the importance of ritual in their art practice. Whether it is lighting a candle as they enter the studio, meditating before working, listening to a certain musician, walking to gather thoughts for the day, and the list can go on. We talked about this while together this week and what rituals we have already established (our regular correspondence through the mail and regular blog posts about our process as two artists working collaboratively).
We wanted to begin a ongoing ritual to complete and honor our time spent together. Finding Flying Wish Paper at a shop in Providence seemed like the perfect solution. There is a video at that link that shows what flying wish paper is.
It is our attempt at setting an intention/wish for the in between time until we see one another again. We focused on our current success and what we are proposing for the future months to come.
Below are some highlights from this ritual on Laura’s backyard riverfront dock.
We are busy writing more posts about our time together and all that we have planned for the next few months so stay tuned for more posts about our visit.
