That's an interesting question wotan. It goes right to the heart of
"what is art?"

Sometimes it seems to me that if art had never involved some sort of
cash exchange we wouldn't ask these sorts of questions.

Then my mind wanders to to the word "value". Before art for cash there
was art for the community - spiritual, social, ceremonial....

A camera is a tool. Just like a paintbrush or a chisel. "This is the
world through my eyes."

I have taken some of my paintings and copied them to photoshop where I
played digitally with them. Sometimes I would think "All I am doing
here is producing happy mistakes", but then even painting involves
endless "happy mistakes".  At first I distrusted that I could "erase"
what I had done and then I realised that when I paint I also erase.

If anything I create with any tool causes me, and possibly others, to
pause, to experience a moment of something "other", to feel something
swell up inside (aside from gas - hehehe), I consider it art.

We live live in a world busting with art. It is everywhere, not just
on gallery walls. It comes from unlikely sources. I think that is
because we are all divine.

blah blah blah lol
