I'm included in a curation experiment
I struggle with the word "artist". In the past I've worked with artists and I'm nothing like them and I struggle with people using the word "artist" when clearly they are an artisan.
I hope that the more I see my name within several words of "artist" that the feeling comes to me. In the meantime, I'll do my own thing, make what I want to make, understanding that in no way does it fit with "mainstream" culture and not really knowing where within the "underground" I am. I will not add that this scenario at times is lonely, coz that would just be silly.
