The nourishing process involves an exchange: something is assimilated and consumed to provide energy to something else. A cycle that can be either virtuous or vicious, depending on what you decide or have the opportunity to consume. Even imaginary works this way: it must be fed and cared of, cultivated, cleaned up from what is no longer needed. Through our work as artists, we feed our imaginary and the one of the people; we can have him be moved, have him reflect, consider, feel; we can leave seeds that will sprout out in time, creating the ground on which the future generations will intervene; we can shift points of view, provide stimuli, suggest changes.
