Try Less Hard

Catalog Number: 
Zine, Try Less Hard
Date: 
2009
Abstract: 
Try Less Hard is the story of a king and his owltopus. Try Less Hard is about leaving home, remembering the places that you have left, imagining the places you haven't been yet, and acquiring experience along the way. It's both funny and poignant, and there's a lot of meat in it. Try Less Hard is a philosophy for artistic collaboration. Definition #1: Try less hard is relying less on inspiration and more on process and collaboration. Try less hard is listening, being patient, being tolerant, being still. It is hard to try less hard. We sometimes fail when we try to try less hard. Try less hard is a work in progress. Definition #2: Try less hard is letting work direct itself, allowing the process to take its course. Try les hard is near the owltopi, fish coats and shores made of bread. It can be cultivated as a houseplant with the requisite constraints, collaboration, fertilization and many hours of work. It takes more time than trying hard.
