(almost) everything you need to know about matt wolfe
I am organically artistic. At least, that's what I like to call it... I think everything in life is art, paradoxically chaotic and ordered all at once. In all that I find myself wanting to create ways to tell the truth of the moment; for whatever project is at hand.
I dabble in graphic design, take pictures, shoot videos, play some instruments, (think about trying to) write sometimes, and I fancy myself as a fan of great cooking, though I've yet to pick up on the culinary arts as a creator.
As with all these things, I approach them similar to how I make a video; if I don't want to watch it six or twenty times back-to-back, then I haven't connected with the material, and I haven't done what I've set out to do. There is a sense of timelessness with art (food, photo, video, design, music, whatever) where there is an acute unawareness of time - art should create or reflect moments. Moments, I suppose, that you get lost in.
Now, just because that's the goal for me to accomplish, that doesn't mean I always succeed. But, I learned many years ago, or was taught that it should be this way, anyway, that art belongs to itself. It is always using the feeble hands and feet and mouths and eyes of rather mundane humans as it tries to escape into our world.
So I like getting lost in art.
And I like Legos.
Yes, the plastic toys.
Don't judge me.
I also like sweet action board games.
And I don't even care that you're judging me now.
