Wage for Work

Here's an intriguing organization that was just brought to my attention: Wage for Work, based on the premise that art contributes to the economy, and that artists should receive "payment for making the world more interesting."

http://www.wageforwork.com/wage.html

Lots of links to look at on their page. They have a point.

Bella Land - silent clips

A few slivers of film I put together of me in various things....wanted to make them into a stream of feelings...the kind I've had while looking in a bathroom mirror on a train going somewhere.....reviewing where I've been and wondering where I'm going...

First day of involvement with AMP is today, 49 wks after joining! Confession!

Helloooooo! I'm finally deciding to do something on here!

Okay....now, I'm going to do a little tour around the site.....see what I see....

I can't believe I joined 49 weeks ago and had done NOTHING on here, not even put up a picture or any of my work!

Going from this moment....

First day of involvement with AMP is today, 49 wks after joining! Confession of a block I'm trying to work out of me!

I suppose I just felt overwhelmed at the thought of exploring here, or it could be a subconscious resistance to activating my art life and connecting with others in that way, even though all of this is so wonderful and sacred and necessary for me. This is my first posting and I just put my picture up and I have told myself that I will explore the site a bit and see what's going on.

I think it's both of these things as I have suffered quite a long and numbingly baffling resistance to making new work. Even now, that I have a show less than a month away, I still can't seem to make myself go into the studio.
