Accident

“I do still stumble across things by accident. As I’m always telling my students: you won’t get anywhere sitting at a table thinking. You learn by doing. That’s how you move forward. And even if you do something wrong, the result may be much more interesting than what you went looking for.”

-Andreas Gursky

This little gem in a brief Gursky interview in the Guardian.

Always be open to possibility. Recognize when things are working and when they aren’t. We strive for intention, to follow our narrative, to complete our agenda. But that doesn’t always work, and we need to recognize when a project isn’t moving forward. At the same time, don’t be too quick to switch gears, especially at the final hours.
