Creative Principles: Ann Hamilton
Acts That Amplify: Ann Hamilton on Art, the Creative Value of Unproductive Time, and the Power f Not Knowing....
“But not knowing, waiting and finding — though they may happen accidentally, aren’t accidents. They involve work and research. Not knowing isn’t ignorance. (Fear springs from ignorance.) Not knowing is a permissive and rigorous willingness to trust, leaving knowing in suspension, trusting in possibility without result, regarding as possible all manner of response. The responsibility of the artist … is the practice of recognizing.”
