F Words

I was writing and re-writing words and sentences for dealing with my artist’s block at that time. I was new in Berlin, where I had come with the residency stipend, and had a great studio. It seemed like everything was going great but there was no joy and flow with work. I would go to the studio and would not be able to make something, and that was an unknown condition for me. Slowly I started connecting words and sentences and found 4 F-s that seemed to play a role in my situation. With these F-words, I constructed a whole sentence that reads: with the FEAR to FAIL I start to FAKE for the FAME.
