Sometimes working on a project for countless hours can get tiring. Just like a grid helps a design have structure, sprinting can help maintain a productive cadence while working. “Sprinting” is trick to use when designing multiple compositions or variations. You begin and complete a piece within thirty minutes. I found this process incredibly limiting yet equally freeing. It reminds the mind not to get bogged down in boredom, yet demands the exploration of unknown territory. My latest project Missed Connections is comprised of finals from a set of sprints. Having a collection of over thirty compositions meant that the final six that were included in the printed booklet were top–notch.
