Nike Savvas - Atomic: full of love, full of wonder, 2005
Nothing exists until or unless it is observed. An artist is making something exist by observing it. And his hope for other people is that they will also make it exist by observing it. I call it "creative observation". Creative viewing.
. . . in all time
Calm or convuls'd - in breeze, or gale, or storm,
Icing the pole, or in the torrid clime
Dark-heaving; - boundless, endless, and sublime -
The image of Eternity . . .
Lord Byron, Childe Harold's Pilgrimage
William S. Burroughs
Expressing what exists is an endless task.
Musique Du Jour: Across the Universe, Fiona Apple
