Patti Smith – Mystical Communication and the Labour of Creation

On the topic of summer – summer themed Uni projects, can’t escape absurd heat wave in Melbourne residence behind antique shop, I could be at the pool instead of studying diligently like a ninja, I re-read one of my favourite paperbacks while I was on holiday.


Here is a quote that has resonated from Patti Smith’s just kids:

“The artist seeks contact with his intuitive sense of the gods, but in order to create his work, he cannot stay in this seductive and incorporeal realm. He must return to the material world in order to do his work. It’s the artist’s responsibility to balance mystical communication and the labor of creation”.
