Question 19: Which of your pieces are you most satisfied with, and why is that so?
The works I’m most satisfied with are usually the ones in which I think I’ve been able to effectively communicate the relationships that I wanted to, or that the idea comes across fairly clearly to the observer, and one that is validated by audience perception, because it is important to know what your audience thinks of your work. The ones I’m happiest with are ones in which somebody will come up to me after they’ve seen a particular piece, and tell me how they saw it, in a way that I never considered in conceiving the piece and constructing the piece, but is a perspective that’s totally valid. And I think when I see that, it means that I’ve probably done my job properly, in which I’ve been able to make a connection for a person that I wasn’t even aware of at the time of making the piece. I think that means that I’ve been able to hit on enough key points that anybody’s been able to look at the piece, been able to plug in a certain amount of their personal experience, and walk away with something that’s significant from it.
