Damn, a serious question deserves a serious answer. Tough luck pal. ;)

Here's one of my favorites:
"Our time is a time for crossing barriers, for erasing old categories - for probing around. When two seemingly disparate elements are imaginatively poised, put in apposition in new and unique ways, startling discoveries often result."

your quote rings true. art is what you can "get away with". i'm not sure it is that simple in my mind. this is all a fun game of opinion, of course....and why do museums have agreements with native americans about controlling and owning their ancient art?

oh no. just offended all museum curators. i love museums. i just learned of some more sad facts about native american oppression.

so now that i've found someone to talk about art.

does anyone find that attention and/or lack of, corresponds to the intensity and length of the muse?

i'm 48 and feel like art is just starting to come out as i learn about attention and the brain. and let my traditional views of art slide away.

so is creativity regulated by brain function solely or is there really an outside energy that our brain feels sometimes more than others??/

Art and The Government

The Church also tries to control the definition of art.

There is a docko called Accidental Genius running lately.
There is a doctor on there who says he can trigger the creative drive with certain impulses.
It only lasts a bit, but it means that it is there in everyone.
I'm not sure what other implications are there for artists.

The artist decides what art is.

Art traditionally evokes emotion and emotion evokes art, but emotion is not art and art is not emotion.

Art is what is around us, it is what makes us laugh and cry, it is the beauty that we try to emulate and the history we try to preserve.

Art comes from the creator, the one that sees the piece (traditionally), music, dance, performance, spoken word or paint.

Art is what you are. Each a canvas, each the brush, each the paint.

Look in the mirror and see the beauty that is truly fine art.

I agree.

So why should the government regulate the sale or distribution of any "art"?

but creative energy itself?

Postby Claudia Platt » Tue May 13, 2008 11:05 am

What is 'creativity' some think there is no original thought. is creativity fluid ions, love, nothing, sonar, gas, that unknown elelement is is creativity in my mind? a word only.

sound waves, shock waves, dolphin waves, was is it?

and why doesn't anyone care about who owns art? i guess my real question is if an artists wants to share their art but the government or whoever says you may not because it isn't art. you create for no audience. do you create a secret audience, but now the feeling of the experience of the art is changed.??

what then?

I know it is good art at Burning Man if I squirt it with my cock-cannon.

I just don't squirt everything, you know ? I am kinda picky.

BTW, if any of you have had art on playa in the last 9 years, I have probably squirted upon it.

Consider it a blessing and a babtismal at once.

Have a nice day. :D
