Praxis is the process by which a theory, lesson, or skill is enacted or practiced, embodied and/or realized.
You could say that it is all about getting your hands dirty.
I am on leave from my day job, so spent today day in my shed, making things.
And it was great- sawdust in my hair and things taking shape on a workbench.
I have come to love creating things out of bits of rubbish- driftwood, fallen branches, old rope. A lot of what I do is cerebral- it happens in an office and has little physical end product.
There is a point to this activity though- we have an embryonic craft co-operative, and my contribution is to be photographs and some sculptures made from ‘found’ objects.
So far I have enjoyed the making, but I have not got round to actually selling anything!
