Austin Kleon in his book “Show your work” talks about the vulnerability felt when sharing one’s process.
When I’m open about the physical and mental mess of making I feel a little uncomfortable. I like to present my work when I feel it’s resolved and together. I don’t like to show the things that get edited out along the way. But process IS messy. Not everything does work, not everything does get resolved, and those bits can be even more interesting than the tightly parcelled end product.
I need to work on this whole ‘being vulnerable’ business.
