Manners of Depiction and Narration
I divide my creative mindset, or mods of operation while making images, into these five:
- Emotional: sensations, senses, perception, emotions, feelings, conscious awareness.
- Erotic: sexuality, sex-appeal, flirting, arousal, orgasm, loving intimacy.
- Intellectual: meditation, will, balance, complexity, composition, challenge.
- Introspective: self, consciousness, internal state, seeing inwardly.
- Spontaneous: poetry, movement, gesture, reaction, curiosity, experiments.
