This weekend Physeter Nichols (conducting a tour of SL installations) stated more than once that my artwork was indicative of very different thinking - a non linear or lateral approach. I felt sort of compelled to sort this statement out because it almost seemed like a if there was something a little "tetched" about my brain.
"Every act of creation is first an act of destruction,”my favorite artist of all time said (Pictured above) He didn't spend time analyzing his next move, he moved on impulse to break down the normal restrictions and impediments to new discovery. Picasso was a lateral thinker. I'm going to imagine that I'm brainstorming with Picasso on my next piece of art.
So what is entelechy? It is the vital force that pushes you to make the most of your potential and work towards a specific goal. Chaos is a good thing for lateral or non-linear thinkers.
