Eye of the soul

I wish that art did not include critical thinking for critical thinking sake. Questions such as is it more important to think critically all the time about every different decision you make or could it be more important to feel or imagine something. I am not arguing that criticality is not important in art practice as it is, moreover I am saying that i feel that imagination and feeling needs to be raised and valued in the same way. Because as I look back over my degree I feel like i made the best piece of work in my foundation year. Furthermore looking at it you can see the wonder at animation the experimental play with material things that i should have continued with on the course. I do feel optimistic as after revisiting i have a desire to make work that really makes you ponder what I am asking, What is it communicating.

‘Imagination is the eye of the soul.’
