Looking into the Mud of the Soul 

Looking at word association games, I made up a mind-map of ideas to do with the word ‘slip’.  The words are organised below alphabetically.

  • acting
  • agateware
  • animation
  • artefacts
  • ballet
  • body
  • breaking
  • casting
  • children
  • clay
  • colour
  • corruption
  • cracks
  • crystals
  • death
  • earth
  • ergonomics
  • eroticism
  • falling down
  • fakery
  • film
  • Freud
  • gender
  • Gesamtkunstwerk
  • gold
  • goldfish
  • history /of art
  • im/permanence
  • kintsugi
  • Klimt, Gustav
  • life /cycle
  • Lilith
  • mistakes
  • music
  • mark-making
  • nature
  • photography
  • pollution
  • porcelain
  • practicality
  • practice
  • presence
  • provenance
  • semiotics
  • sex toys
  • symbol
  • theatre
  • time
  • tongue
  • toys
  • rarity
  • vessels
  • vitality
  • Whistler
  • womb

Listed in such a manner, the words come un-linked in how they were originally associated.  This allows for new connections to be made while still retaining the coherence of the ideas as a whole, under their unifying title of ‘slip’.

Combinations I made using non-co-related words:

  • practicality + provenance = rarity + life/cycle
  • death + breaking = colour
  • symbols + gender = acting + im/permanence + history
  • eroticism + ergonomics = sex toys + casting
  • mistakes + kintsugi= nature + mark-making
