Board 4: Gray Consciousness
The Process of Understanding Gray
Here I followed the progression of the day by cataloging each event and assigning it a P and / or W, then took the sum of each. Interesting, the day produced a net balance between the two. I don't show the full list of events in order to protect the innocent and the guilty. In parallel, I produced a collage with time stamps according to my text messages or receipts issued, with events bleeding into one another. The process of gathering this information - viewing it as data - allowed me to expose the raw spectrum of my feelings, but ironically also offered me a more measured narrative. Life is complex and a range of feelings super-imposed on events can often lead me to overwhelming upset and disappointment. In this board, I avoided assigning any event as negative to explore alternative sense of the day as a new, more value-neutral survival mechanism.
Looking back on this day > two weeks later, my sense of the day remains balanced. I will attempt to hold onto this life strategy in future crises, though it is counter to my nature.
