I tend not to think (or analyse) when I am in the process of collage, but that is not the same as not trying or that it is meaningless. It just flows better when I seperate from the mind.
The mind stops me mid creation. It questions. It is an over analyser.
Collage is meditation for me. When I am not trying to create anything in particular, I can get into a state of creating purely for the sake of creating. Purely for the process. Allowing what wants to come through.
Sometimes I have a theme, sometimes I have images I am prepared to incorporate, sometimes I start fresh. Sometimes I work over existing beginnings.
