The Field Notes
series is a place to share and reflect on your work — and life — with our creative community. Running continuously since our inception, this series offers creative practitioners from all disciplines an opportunity to take us behind the scenes. This can be approached in a vast variety of ways and in a multitude of forms: from the direct documentation of work, activity, production, place, conversation, etc., in text, photo, video, audio, etc. to a more involved process in which a practitioner opts to take the field notes themselves on AS a practice — creating singular or serial documentation of work-in-progress or a particular project over a period of time. Previous entries have included composers, scientists, visual artists, choreographers, poets, journalists, and more — sharing journal pages, recordings, sketches, interview notes, lists, photos,… nothing is inadmissable. We’re also interested in shining the light here on what it means to live a creative LIFE in the other, invisible hours — whether that means you’re a writer who spends his summers on an Alaskan Fishing Rig
, or a neurobiologist discovering gold in the seeming jibberish of your journal pages.
