Synopsis

What is intuition, where does it come from, how does it interact with making and viewing art, how can it be 'encouraged'? These are questions raised by Pat Paxson. She uses ideas of Sigmund Freud, Jacques Lacan, Anton Ehrenzweig and others, braiding them together so that they dovetail in a surprising and informative manner. This results in helpful ideas for encouraging the emergence of intuition, that intriguing but invisible mental process whose actual processing is invisible to us.
