Love it or hate it? Or maybe casually indifferent to it?
I love theory - the logic of the arguments, the very particular structure used to walk us through it, the art of selecting the most resonant words (and images).
I generally feel my time engaged with theory is well spent, in part just because it makes me happy.
Except when it comes to theories of art. Because then the tension between theory and practice becomes a lot harder for me to manage.
Why do I feel so drawn to read about art, at the expense of making it?
I could be doing both but there is so much to learn. I often feel like I should prioritize one over the other, so I can focus better.
Should I primarily be learning through the left side of my brain or the right...?
