How to surprise yourself (a mini-tutorial from Seoul, Korea)

Sometimes you might try too hard to create good art on the first try: you decide what you want to make, and then try to make that, but this leaves very little room for happy accidents and surprising yourself.

Instead, I propose that you first pass through a phase called “generating material” where you explore a process and a prompt more freely and completely, then through transforming your material you end up in a more exciting artistic place.
