In a place where natural light arrives, at a window, a balcony, a courtyard, you warm up, breathe, and let yourself be blinded with your eyes closed.
You stare at a pattern of light.
Choose a sheet of paper/carton on which to collect the light filtered by a shutter or the foliage of a plant, in the shapes you like and enjoy. Sometimes they are long strips, continuous or interrupted, or they are corners, fragments, polka dots and the beauty is that they stop little, they move and change all the time, they jump and dance. Observe for a long time. You lose all the necessary time.
Trace by heart. Color. Crop.
With what you have available, fix the shapes you’ve chosen. You can obtain natural colours from fruit and vegetables, or use industrial ones, here for convenience I used a pastel, eye shadow and lipstick, then for black I used a burnt toothpick, which I also used to play with three-dimensionality and balance. Cut out one of the shapes, make a hole.

Use the hole as a lens + re-appropriation of reality.
At this point you could put on some music, dance, shake a little.
Use the resulting cutout as a window, a porthole, a perceptual mask. Through it you can isolate details, words, evaluate your patterns, mental associations, symbols. Select elements from the information that comes to you, the news, make an analog-digital collage. Publish it on social media.
You can decide which signs to wear by transferring them to a canvas or a self-portrait bag workshop/ tutorial :

Shuffle it up.
When the balance between the elements, shapes and colours suits you, look for another balance.
