How Wow

As I said before, what I enjoy about creating these rings is the element of pure play. With the photo-collages, there is (that is to say, I feel) an obligation to make something coherent and, to an extent, meaningful. With these, any "meaning" emerges as a side-product of the cumulative, iterative pattern- and mark-making. It's an art-making game, with clear rules, and plenty of scope for surprises. And, played right, like all good magic tricks, the "how" should get lost in the "wow".

Wow! Can I ask you something?..

Sure, so long as it's not "how"... (or "why", for that matter... which I'm not sure about myself).
