What did you notice about the way you responded to the prompts, Did it change through out the project? The promts all depended on how i was feeling that specific day. Nearer to the end, I got restless and my responses became baren and uninaginative. Most of them were quite negative and angry, because there was always that air of “want but do not have.” I managed to twist all my responses back to that subject. What was your favorite prompt and why?

“Thoughts of the shadows of our feelings” (The one with pencil & paper) was my favorite because the product of my thoughts was so simple yet spoke to me so deeply yet in “Isolation Vs. Solitude,” I was so out of mind and body that the product of my thoughts even shocked me. What were your favorite materials and why? Definately watercolor. Its a medium i’ve never explored, it was so frustrating that it became fascinating.

What are some consistencies you notice in the formal qualities of your works? Are there things you always do? I always ask for something. I always demand change in my responses. usually in the form of poems. Everything had to convey an answer or present a situation. There had to be a “why,” and a “because,” that followed it.
