When a muted palette is spread over huge flat surfaces of canvas, to form giant walls of series of paintings, the effect is somewhat like another world. Painter Jessica Zoob is here making and looking at the remarkable size of her art.
If you normally create in small-scale, try bigging it up. If you write a short story, try the “On the Road” style of Jack Kerouac – who apparently sellotaped huge amounts of paper together and then just began typing and kept on. A computer screen is similarly unchallenged in length – you can type a sprawling remembered saga of adventures, keeping going as long as you can. Then leave it for a day before reading it back and tweaking.
On the other hand, if you usually work big, try writing small. If you usually write a full-length film script, write just one scene. Or if you paint full-height canvases, make something very very small.
Afterwards, reflect on what you learned from the experience.
