[platform for showcasing unfinished versions]

When assessing the given drawing package, I felt myself fixating on one image in particular: 01_02B_1x (captioned: Aggregation Axon). The initial exploration was concerned with spatial qualities derived from ennepers. Yet, when the author depicted these surfaces as transparent, I was intrigued by the varying moments of overlap. My iteration became hyper-focused on randomly selected pixel clusters, revealing the various patterns which emerged from these moments of overlap.

This small series includes: a fairly automatic poem written just past midnight, a sketch done around midday after fiddling with it, and a second poem written at the end of the same day. The second and third items were inspired by the one preceding it.
I don’t tend to leave fragments hanging/unfinished or change content after the first sitting, but I play with at least one piece almost every day, mostly obsessing over line breaks. They usually reach convergence, but one day I might feel completely different. I haven’t studied/submitted/published poetry, so I’ve never had to say for sure what “finished” means.
