Well, it's good to find out early when an idea turns out to be not so good. I finally mastered folding the square to the point where I thought I could experiment. My thought has been that I could take old images and make something new out of them. I guess I did that, but the results, at least with these images, are nothing I want to use. It could be that something else would work, but I can see that random images do nothing. I'd have to trust the power of my "inner artist" a lot more than I do. I doubt that my inner artist went along for the bumpy ride while I struggled to duplicate a prescribed geometric form. And even my choice of the piece of work I used was based on its size and manipulative qualities, not the image on it.
So, keep going.
(I ordered the book you reviewed, bookseller friend, but I still don't know how to communicate with you besides as a footnote to my own posts.)
