In this piece, I decided to use all the materials I had previously prepped for other projects but fit them into one composition. I used a whole new style that I had not worked with before. I did not check how each piece worked in correlation to the others until the very last layers. I started the composition by randomly laying down the paper and gluing it on. I thought less and used intuition more. I worked starting with big layers to small. I had been researching and exploring music, specifically slower music full of drums. After reflecting on the piece I questioned the steps of my art process and my 'working' phase. I thought about the beat of the music: patterns, rhythms, melody. I was surprised at how quickly this piece flowed together. I used all the things I learned from my previous paper and mixed media collage.
