Most of us doodle, I fidget. I can spend all day with the most peculiar thing in my hand and only later, when I get home do I relfect on how I have held this object in my hand for the entire day, never letting go of it and often transforming it. This is how I came to have these two manipulated paper clips.
I have kept them on my desk for several days becuase they make the most interesting line formations, negative shapes and shadows. I am not sure how they inspire me but do they do becuase they are essentially so simple and yet appear so complex.
