The Nature of All Things - Perspectives No. 337
The Nature of all Things
Change. It's the nature of all things, yet there is also a natural human inclination to avoid it whenever possible—perhaps because it can be uncomfortable—even painful. But change is what propels our art forward and to deny it in our work can doom us to repeating what we have already done. We learn through failure, more often than not. We try to practice that sound principle and to teach it to our students. Once we get comfortable with failure as our constant companion, we become free to explore wherever we like.
