When do we attribute intention, and when do we not? I was jolted into thinking about creative intention some years ago when I found a leaf that had been cut to be perfectly symmetrical. I didn’t manage to get it home in one piece to photograph it. I did however manage to get this leaf home, with its balance of color and cutting. So, for purposes of pondering, I am framing this piece as an animistic collaboration.
Composition – me.
