account = history, sketch, marker, repository of influences
An account of a specific work traces its arc—through texts and world—while giving voice to the artist’s approach. We ask that if you choose to be satirical, you do so in service of the work you are submitting. We are most interested in how you are tracking the thought, influences, and choices that make up your aesthetic as it pertains to a specific work.
We will not consider work submitted without an account.
