You can’t look round your emotions, you have to look through them

‎Your emotions are the lens through which we look at the world. You can’t look round your emotions, you have to look through them.

This interview with Turner award winner Grayson Perry makes for interesting reading.  I’ve been impressed with his channel 4 series In the Best Possible Taste in which he interrogates the relationship between class and taste (the programs are available to view on Channel 4 OD here).  In particular, I’ve admired his capacity to move fluidly between thinking, feeling and making.  It’s great to see  a practitioner at the top of their game talking about the importance of emotion (their own and others’) as a core component of the creative process.  Perry has been awarded a two year contract from Channel 4 to make more work – I’m looking forward to seeing how he approaches the documentary medium as another art space.
