Iina Koppinen: Writing and speaking – and thoughts about these

Iina Koppinen: Writing and speaking – and thoughts about these

OHMYGOSSIP –  I’ve been sick, the flu for the whole week now! The stubborn one!  When I was getting better – then I had to do some stressful things.. and I was sick again.  And I’ve felt that I’am doing all in a complicated way this week.  And I hate difficulties! So, this week I haven’t been even in my thoughts in a right place at the right time.  Just been hoping that I’ve been in a right place at the wrong time or at the wrong place at the right time, with my thoughts and things had to be done.  I’ve been running around and preparing those upcoming exhibitions.  The whole week I’ve had this Albert Einstein quote in my mind “Everything must be made as simple as possible.  But not simpler.”, because last week I watched one document about him.

Creative work itself is a balanced whole, elements should support each other.  When one detail takes an attention away from the combination- then the work ain’t having the balance, which must have it to be successful.

There are good days and sometimes bad days.  My major work was trying to get distraction and bad feeling from my mind.  Days like these come to us sometimes – challenging days..

I’ve been thinking lately – why I chose to be a blog writer about my visual work, mostly. Maybe one reason – it keeps me confident, when I speak about art.  And it’s relaxing to write – makes things so much easier to express – and writing is also keeping motivation in visual art. I also want to be a better writer.  So, there are couple of good things, why to write, and how it works with me.

It’s a thin line between professional writing and diary- style blog text, this is my opinion.

In any case, good writing is quite simple in it’s structure and interesting combined with information.  There are many kind of texts as there are writers.  Simplicity doesn’t mean to limit things, just opening them up more easy.  I often should remember to rely on that big picture – doesn’t need to explain and open everything.

I use to work mostly alone – sometimes in the long run, the motivation to keep up working is somehow required.  Naturally maintaining will include all aspects of life and minimizing disturbing factors.  It is important to me the working environment is pleasant and clean.  And raising all the good and joyful things on the table, it gives me energy.

I have had a problem – when things go wrong or feel I fail in something, I tend to feel hypersensitive panic and this can have a huge impact on how I feel about myself.  Through personal reflection I began to realize that it wasn’t always the situation that was affecting me but more the way in which I was internalising.  With this keeping in my mind – I decided to turn how I was viewing life’s challenges by seeing them less as obstacles and more like valuable life lessons to help me to learn and grow.  I admit this isn’t the easiest thing to do, but if I can’t change what happens in my life then I can change how respond to it.

This kind simplifying is sometimes difficult, but when I reach it – even in some parts – I notice that there are many things, topics of the days – to achieve a calm, peaceful and a happy day, almost every day.  And doing so, there’s no reason to panic even in those areas of work, which are challenging and perhaps feeling like obstacles.  This digitizing world might confuse our conventional thinking.  I don’t want to be confused or break in pieces whatever I do.  I want always reach my goals.

Simplicity is also to know who you are, and doing it bravely.  As a concrete example – I’ve been asked why my Instagram account is full of different pictures and photos?  Why there’s not the clear line at the moment.. It doesn’t show only my visual art or who I am as a person – it also reflects how my motivation grows, where ideas come from and how they are ultimately bound up as a visual work.

I know the main topic should be the highlight, and now – almost a year after I started my account, I’am trying to solve, how to make the feed look better, but I hope I can keep in style, which looks myself.

Understanding the emphasizing own strength can only make positive impact!

Have a nice day where ever you are!

Ciao, lovelies
