The greatest of all qualities to creativity, and the force that can seize you by chance. The random discovery of a book, a path, a film or a restaurant through the process of meandering and happenstance. This is now becoming an elusive part of the creative process as our interactions with the world are monitored, screened to, manipulated and manufactured. Everything is a ‘strategy’.

What is fascinating about the world, is that it often resides in the filigree and shadow: elusive, revealing and compelling. It is an intimacy with the world that leads to understanding, and if we don’t have time to gaze, to absorb and to make sense of it all, it will be become difficult to also find your own voice.
