"How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. What we do with this hour, and that one, is what we are doing." ––Annie Dillard
The focus of our attention shifts as we respond to the reality we perceive and the contrast we experience.
Our actions are the expression of our values, we make choices in attempt to find balance and mediate the pressures of our lives.
ehsto. is an attempt to strengthen the creative agency inherent in the individual and to inspire the adoption of a personal creative practice that extends beyond pen & paper or painted canvas, to the medium of attention––deliberately spent, whenever possible.
ehsto.projects are inspired by the premise "everyone has something to offer." They explore the fundamental principles of the creative process, with curiosity about what it means to make "progress"––at the level of the individual, the community and each generation that inspires the next.

Pressure Mediation is a creative practice that evolved from a single hand-drawn line. That first line inspired a second and a third emerged in response to the varying tension between them. Through iteration, consecutive lines propagate across the surface as wave-forms. Their shape being defined by resistance and the rate of its release. Both being a consequence of the flux in attention, the nature of the medium being used and the varying degree to which the creator accepts their ability to respond.
The unique nature of each wave form led to a daily practice which began on 23rd September 2019 and has since expanded into new mediums with curiosity about what it means to make "progress"––at the level of the individual, the community and each generation that inspires the next.
