Why Do We Want To Keep A Record At All?

Sheffield, U.K.

In my last post I said I was going to try and write using a hand-made format. But why bother – what’s the point when you can just type it all out?

One reason why is that it’s a form of Action Research – a way of experimenting with an approach and seeing what effect it has on one’s practice – whatever that happens to be. It’s easy to type – easy to come up with text but it’s harder to compress ideas into a few words arranged on a page. You start to think in terms of elements, a headline, bits of text, illustrations and you’re not sure what medium to use or how it comes together but you start trying something and see what happens and eventually something will happen. It always does.
