creative practice: opposite action
Opposite action. That's when you consider what you'd usually do in a situation, and then do the opposite. A friend (you know who you are) mentioned this idea to me a few years ago when I didn't much take it in. It's a thought--and even if one doesn't carry through with the action, the thought may open up new ideas. It just may be how most art gets created, too.
