Failure is just a different name for a qualified success.
Here is the timelapse video of my attempts to create a new piece of work for the 20×20 show at Access Space, Sheffield, UK. The first two attempts involved actual paint, but the final successful attempt is a cardboard mosaic, based upon a digitally created image.
Strictly speaking, I could easily have hidden it. Who would have known? However, it seemed a shame to waste four days of timelapse video, and even my mum enjoyed this video.
So failure is an option after all.
