Something new!

Yes, I badly need some new inspiration visually, a new direction, some new techniques, something. Thanks, Satu.

Stephen,
these were very refreshing to me because I think that I have stuck to my style and these were something so
different in inspiring way...

and well when I think about a lots of visual poetry these pieces of Your were juts something new in an awsome way....

and I'm very glad that You shared these... and I'm waiting with a greate curiosity what there will be next...


I myself must also get a new direction, but it means that I have to work sometime under a pseudonyme... and that's not so nice but it gives me freedom to work and create... or maybe I should go "underground" for a while...

but in this process is very important to see something like this you have done.... it gives inspiration also to others...

I'm interested in your use of a pseudonym, Satu. Do you feel overly identified with "Satu's style"? Obviously the freedom to create something totally different is important. Your work is broad and far reaching but always marked with your individuality, which I think expresses a certain unique atmosphere and feeling.

Thanks for your encouragement. I certainly need it for my visual work. My problem, I think, is technical - I have ideas and subjects that interest me but I need to broaden my techniques, something that I naturally shy away from because I generally work digitally but am slow and reluctant with the software, which is probably a bit of a contradiction. I also lack any traditional art skills or hands-on craft techniques. Given some time and determination however, I think I can explore the software more thoroughly.

Looking forward to meeting you at the Text festival!
