"Stop thinking about art works as objects, and start thinking about them as triggers for experiences. (Roy Ascott’s phrase.) That solves a lot of problems: we don’t have to argue whether photographs are art, or whether performances are art, or whether Carl Andre’s bricks or Andrew Serranos’s piss or Little Richard’s ‘Long Tall Sally’ are art, because we say, ‘Art is something that happens, a process, not a quality, and all sorts of things can make it happen.’ … [W]hat makes a work of art ‘good’ for you is not something that is already ‘inside’ it, but something that happens inside you — so the value of the work lies in the degree to which it can help you have the kind of experience that you call art."
Brian Eno (via jessiethatcher)
I could reblog/post this every day as a constant reminder.
monstrosityindisguise asked: Hey you! How is it going? I really liked your 'I've Got to Keep on Riding' illustration. Just a perfection depiction of my life really! Would you mind if I print it off and hang it in my room? No one to steal the copyrights I promise :) but please let me know if you're fine with it or not.
HEY! Yeah that’s totally cool! How’s everything been going? Hope all is well. It’s good to hear from you.
