There has been a
great deal of debate about whether painting a blue number on a 12X12 canvas is
art. Personally, I’ve been surprised at
how many people have such a narrow definition of art.
Isn’t art communicating an idea – whether in words, pictures, or some other medium?
Today, a very
insightful comment on Inside
the Mind of a Freelance Copywriter caught my attention. “Sala’s art is not in the paintings
themselves. His idea is 100% of his art. And the idea’s potential to turn viral
is 99% of the project’s success.”
To me art is the result of human spirit, creativity, and ingenuity. I love to see it (and try to appreciate it) in any form.
How does this relate to change?
Change often requires that we challenge our definitions and broaden our perspective to consider new things.
I bought number 150 to help me remember that!
