    I care. I engage with art on a daily basis, and I communicate with others about it.
    I invest a substantial amount of time and energy into art. So I am naturally interested in the engagement between myself and art, and others and art.

    ::think:: It puts things in order, but she never sees the same thing twice... So. Order is not static? Order is fluid? Order bends and flows with... progression? What's another word for progression? Not necessarily positive progression? Circumstance? A point of view that alters with circumstance? Interesting. Concepts, LA, concepts to work with. Lol.

    Oh, that's hardly fair! Didn't I tell you I left art because I couldn't stand art school and art people? How you must have smiled... Anyway, yeah, I deleted that last post because I realized I wasn't talking about art but about my perspective—inotherwords, I didn't feel like shouldering such a huge responsibility for an art world that I truly feel estranged from. I also got a bit strange towards the end of that post and the following morning I couldn't quite place myself—one of those mornings when you really don't feel like explaining anything, even to oneself.

    Can one ever talk about anything but one's own perspective?
    And yet, on the other hand - How can there possibly be such a thing as "one's own perspective", when, in order to communicate successfully, one must use a common, shared discourse?
    Is there anything inbetween these two?

    I had literally and reluctantly lost contact with the art world, grew new roots in a different world, and consequently no longer felt an allegiance with the old world.

    But the end product derived from making art doesn't include how one came about in approaching art, right? Unless of course you were privy to the artist's studio—and only if the artist was social and kept groupies. But there are people out there who have no one to witness them.

    However, I agree, when art is all dashed up and ready to hang, it becomes a universal language open to debate with a whole different psychology. Suddenly the world "owns" it—even if it had disowned its author.

    Technically, this thread should be merged with the Picture Contest thread.
    Any objections?

    Perhaps I should retitle that thread and edit the initial post to signify the altered scope of the thread.

    Me personally, I'm not trying to "compete" with anybody, but if the contest thread is intended as more of an exposé, then I have no objections

    It's original purpose was a short term contest, but it long ago poured over the dike on that limitation.
