“There are idiots who define my work as abstract; yet what they call abstract is what is most realistic. What is real is not the appearance, but the idea, the essence of things.” – Constantin Brancusi

What is art exactly?
It’s all art. The way you dress, how you walk, how you talk. It’s all art. Poetry and philosophy and paintings and songs and movies and the soundtracks of those movies – sometimes even their reviews are art. Every joke ever made, every scribbled note, every photograph. All the fairy tales and the ballads and the legends.
It’s all art.
Architecture. City planning. A mathematical algorithm. A software program. A smartphone. The Internet.
The way the stars shine bright against the night sky. The sound of the rain. The smell of flowers on a summer afternoon.
This world, and everything in it.
It’s all art.
Every bit of beauty that was ever witnessed by another human being is art. Everything that ever made us forget ourselves in admiration, every little thing that took our breath away.
It’s all art.
And we’re all artists.
“Archaeologists have not discovered stages of human existence so early that they were without art. Right back in the early morning twilights of mankind we received it from Hands which we were too slow to discern. And we were too slow to ask: FOR WHAT PURPOSE have we been given this gift? What are we to do with it?” – Alexandr Solzhenitsyn – Nobel Lecture
There is not even a single person on this planet that does not consume art. Regardless of their race, sex, religious beliefs, level of culture, education, income, political affiliation, there isn’t a single human being who does not consume some sort of art. Music is a good example of an artistic medium that is indispensable.
You could probably give up on a lot of things that define who you are, what you do, what you have, but you wouldn’t be able to give up on art.
No Netflix and chill? Ever?
But how is art going to save the world? Continue reading TMM: Art Will Save The World
