Nicole, I have been very interested in your discussions regarding your project.
I am pleased that Michael Rodemer responded to you ...and I hope he has time
to give you some input. His will be most helpful. I would like to say, in
response to your last post regarding how your work will be understood: It is
not your responsibility, as an artist, to determine how your work will be
received. That is the viewers' responsibility. The artist has the respon-
sibility to self, to authenticity and to craft. And every artist.....God,
every artist knows that is almost more than can be borne.
