the “I” or the “We”

June 26, 2013

LornaI have trouble answering the question ‘what is art?’. I know what is bad art. I think. And I’m good with what most people would call great art. (I think.) But everything in between is a bit of an adventure. Is it just up to the taste of the viewer, listener? Is everything to be measured by the “I” or the “We”?

  4. art is something that I undertake everyday – a time when I attempt to create something that allows you the viewer to embark on a journey which may well be very different from mine but is equally as important.
