For me and most makers it is maybe not (only) the outcome that is our motivation for making.
(Often) it is the dialogue with the material that gives us most pleasure. When we make jewelry, we listen to the material, we play with it, we struggle with it, and we might even destroy it while trying to transform it into something meaningful.
In a two-day "Cinematerials" Workshop our students gave room to a process that is usually not recorded and they created narrative sketches out of testing, looking closely at, and listening to our materials.
