Xastol – Reading03

1) As a young boy growing up in a desert wasteland, clouds always caught my attention. I believe they’re a good example of effective complexity because they’re easy to depict; everyone can tell a cloud by it’s random shape. At the same time, clouds are very complex in their formations and volume of gasses (each cloud is unique).

Here are some clouds formed in the Arizona deserts:

2) The problem I have the most internal conflict with is “The Problem of Creativity”. I often question how my work is unique to that of other’s (i.e – how my aesthetics/purpose differs while creating art in a systematic medium). In terms of this problem, my goal is to create work to counter it; I want my work to be undoubtedly me.
