Inspired by a link on my mom's blog (hip mama!), I took up my magazines and started collaging again the other day. As I did, I slowly began to realize that almost everything I like to do, from video editing (cutting footage together) to building things from recyclable materials (I'm working on some designs...don't rush me!) is some variation on the activity of breaking already existing things down, and putting them together differently. Perhaps, in this day and age, when, as The Who said "Everything [we] do's been done before," re-using, re-newing, and recycling is the most exciting way to create!
