What’s your field? You’re a CEO? A poet? A photographer? A blogger? A cook? What do you do, what do you explore, what is your field, your… territory?
You probably like to “Think about your art”, where things are not that obvious. A map is not the territory, but it helps you : “A model is a lie that helps you see the truth”. Why would you study your own field? Make progress? Extend your possibilities? Detect dangers or mistakes? You feel stuck? Going too fast? Other reasons?
Do you think about your art when you’re working on it, or after? Alone or with another person? What happens?

- What if you were stuck in the narrow neck of an hourglass? What does that mean? Do you have to wait? To push?
- If you find grains and rocks, are there a pain, a chance, a luck?
- What could be a compass, in your field? A magnifying glass?
Other ideas of tools to use to study your own activity?
Take these jobs : clockmaker, a topology specialist, a miner, a gold digger, an entomologist. List their tools, their concepts. Then apply on your field. How do they use it? What happens? A nugget? A change? A new map? Vectors? Paths?
