In my previous post I tried to show how I was getting a bit lost in research. I left the lab Saturday frustrated but determined to find my way back to a workable place.
Sunday I had dinner with friends and their 11 year old daughter, R. I was talking about my ICI project and said I was afraid I was falling down a rabbit hole. R sat up straight and confidently informed me that I was too big to fit in a rabbit hole, which is only about (now she used her hands) this size.
Today, as I walked into the lab, I looked up to the ceiling at the only source of natural light
is that the opening and am I truly in the rabbit hole? Or, is everything inverted and the rabbit hole is actually the window? …..
But ultimately R was right. I can’t fit down (or up) the rabbit hole.
So, I decided to simply state my intentions for this Monkey Head project.
I begin at the source, the 3 stone Study Objects:
and work backwards to the book, which will be an Atlas
and I come up with this –
TO LAY BARE THE COMPLICATIONS OF RE-SEARCH AND RE-PRESENTATION BY CREATING AN ATLAS THAT DEPICTS THREE STUDY OBJECTS
which sounds like a plan.
