Thoughts on the Telephone process
It was neither hard nor easy to do this project, because I did not base my works on thoughts, but rather a feeling. I looked at the work I received, and tried to feel it. Once I got the feeling, I was ready to begin making my work. It took a few weeks of viewing the work from the previous artist - I didn’t push for quick results.
