Impasse

The gap has expanded recently between the heavily hand-crafted, detailed works that I find therapeutic and cathartic to produce and the enjoyment I get out of abstracting these pieces via technology, making them into something I find more aesthetically pleasing.  While I get the creative satisfaction out of producing the initial time-consuming object I feel that this is often overshadowed by the subsequent process of making it into something bigger, better and more exciting by fractioning it off, blowing it up and layering it over itself using photography and projection.  The unlimited possibilities offered by technology to re-work that first drawing or object is addictive and renders continual production of hand-crafted pieces obsolete when a single work can be remade indefinitely.
