"Not only were the projects clever, but they also offered an opportunity to grow in one of the ways my friends and I were craving: discipline. The great surrender is the process; showing up day after day is the goal. For the 100-Day Project, it’s not about fetishizing finished products—it’s about the process."
Taking a great photograph and sharing it gets a bit of instant gratification, but it's superseded in short order by the next great photograph, then the next one and so on. But with a head chock full of ideas, the only way I'm going to get them out and see if any are worth bringing to fruition, is by having discipline.
So begins #the100dayproject.
An opportunity to work on my art with regularity and have someone to answer to: me. By publicly sharing my participation, I'm in... if I bail, I'll be forever shamed (in my own mind).
"Creating work is about surrendering to the process. It’s about the act of creativity, which exists as an action and not as a product."
So, DISCARDED it is.
From April 6th to July 14.
I've created a page on my site HERE to keep all the photographs together, but in the meantime, I will share them on my blog and/or instagram and/or facebook as well... all will have the hashtags #the100dayproject & #100daysofdiscarded
Let's see where it goes.
