1. think of an experience of significance to you.
2. create 3 symbols to represent that experience.
3. reproduce one symbol on a separate sheet of paper and "gift" it to the person next to you.
4. explain that one symbol with words on a separate sheet of paper and give that explanation the person sitting on the other side of you.
5. create a symbol for the words just given to you.
6. using lots of various materials, create a visual artwork using only the images/symbols in your possession. layers, erasures, burials, hidings, revelations emerge through repetition. imagine these symbols competing for attention. often switch use of materials every 15 seconds or so.
