so here i go again. launching on another body of work. it's about co-dependency. i cannot wait to dive in. it is another autobiographical body, in some sense, though i will be doing my usual experiments with attempting to tie seemingly disparate idea altogether to build picture of the truth of co-dependency. it's body that has been inside me for a long time, but laid dormant without name. i am ready to make it now. i'll start my reading and research, probably get frustrated, attempt to throw out everything i have learned through the research only to find that everything i have researched that has any meaning remains a part of the work, anyway. i want to explore the mindset of the co-dependent, as well as the recovery and healing of the mind that has a hard time believing that it is capable and can stand on its own two feet.
tied to this is an emerging interest in making work about the healing of the mind of a sex-offender. i have found that codependent people can be drawn to sex-offenders, and would like to explore the healing of this mindset. i want to know how one moves into recovery as a sex-offender. i think it will be a fascinating exploration, and will probably take a couple of years for me to get through. i may just save this bit for my graduate thesis. we'll see. i never know what i am going to do until i am doing it.
