Hiding Places for Better Times
Paper, painting kit
Close your eyes and visualize a place you would rather be at in this moment.
Paint the place you imagined. Write “I want to be here”, your name and the date at the bottom of the painting. Hide it in your home in a place you might possibly forget about. Maybe you’ll find it when times are better.
People hide important, precious or secret things. The process of hiding validates the object, removes it from daily life and positions it in a mental space where wish and projection merges. In my case, every time I enter the bathroom, I step into that secret place and dip my feet in the sea. This continues until I forget about it. Eventually the drawing becomes a forgotten memory reserved for better times.
