I am so proud to publish our second new TrueView Video today with hugely talented mobile artist and Columnist/Editor to TheAppWhisperer, M. Cecilia Sào Thiago (@klimtt). You may recall, our TrueView Video‘s are a unique glimpse into the life and times of mobile artists within our community. With each TrueView Video we pose one singular question and we ask the artist to record their answer to video. This time our question to M. Cecilia Sào Thiago is “how has Covid-19 affected your mobile art?”. She explans “My creative process always works the same way. In the beginning there is a profusion of images, made as if in hypnosis. It is an almost contemplative practice, where little or nothing seems to change in me. After this continuous practice, I notice some changes in my way of creating, changes that come and go. Finally, everything stabilizes, the changes are no longer constant, but lasting, without fluctuation. They are altered features of my doing. But until I can understand where in the world of my being everything that appeared on the screen came from, it will take a while”.
It’s truly unifying to see and hear artists within our community share their thoughts with us, so I am exceedingly indebted to M Cecilia Sào Thiago today for providing us with not ‘just’ one video but two today, for our new theme entitled ‘How has Covid-19 affected your mobile art?’. Enjoy!
‘How has Covid-19 Affected Your Mobile Art?’ with M Cecilia Sào Thiago
I have said that I see a huge wave, a wave that grows every minute, forming on the horizon and coming towards me …
That’s how I feel in the quarantine days.
I worry about everything …
From the national hospital situation, to political struggles and the economic crisis, which will leave a trail of destruction and death in what I recognise as my world.
People say “Frustration is the mother of creativity”. Is it worth it ?
I worry about everything …
And that reflects directly on my work
There is something going on inside me that I have to understand somehow.
I don’t know, I don’t know …
I don’t have a single work that translates what I feel
I’m still in a state of reflection.
Every form of creation for me is like this,
I simply create, create and then discover what was inside me.
You know what I mean ?
What I have done is not very conscious, but it is there.
I feel it is there.
I can’t explain it, it’s right there.
