I am attempting to get the below published. I would appreciate any comments. — Pop
I've had a look at your website and i like it. The 1000 word format sounds good. Ill submit something in the near future. — Pop
Indeed they have with mixed results. Sometimes going with the flow can bring inspiration. It was this little 'divertimento' that caused me to search for a definition of art :these threads have a life of their own — Pop
Yes, it sure has its marvellous moments; here's to more of the same. I was wondering more about how anyone would acknowledge any quotes made by participants in any writing project.The forum and the contributors, have been a wonderful help, I've placed a link to the thread on my website. — Pop
Aside from the theory, how do you do this in practice ?As an artist my main interest is to push the boundaries of art, — Pop
Hopefully diverting it towards an exploration of consciousness. — Pop
Academic acceptance / reinforcement would be helpful, but exposure is more important, — Pop

What kind of consciousness ? — Amity
I think that so many helpful and experienced posters here would love to see their thoughts reproduced in a more permanent way, such as an Article. Even if they don't want to write one themselves. What would that be if not an Individual Collective Creative Consciousness ? :chin: — Amity
Perhaps you could create an amalgam of favourite quotes article ? — Pop

What a quantity of such items my memory is stocked with, things discovered and kept ready for use, the kind of things we say we have learned already and continue to know. Yet if I forgo their retrieval, even for brief intervals, they sink out of sight again, sliding deep into some inner windings, and they must be pressed up out of that place and pressed again into knowable form. We must, that is reconnect them after their dispersion. This is what we mean by 'expression,' which comes from pressing, as 'exaction' comes from acting or 'extension' comes from tending.
In your view, does art include meaning, or is it separate from it? IE: are you only occupied with the meaning of art to the artist his or her self? — kudos
The idea that "Art work is information about the artist’s consciousness," is sort of difficult for me to accept without qualification. If this were true, how could there be such a thing as art work to begin with? Because there would be no necessity for the artist to share information about their consciousness beyond some type of perversion. In addition, without some contribution from outward there can be no 'cast' of art in which to apply it's form. — kudos
Information is power they say, and if this summarizes the concept of art then why would anyone just give power away to someone else for nothing? There must be more to it than that alone. — kudos
That you feel the need to create something - what dose that express?
What is the mind activity that leads you to create art? Is it not your consciousness? — Pop
Yes, you could say consciousness — EnPassant
but 'create' is the motivation — EnPassant
I do not understand creativity that is not an expression of consciousness - please enlighten me. — Pop
It is a desire to create. It is a human need to feel that we create our own lives. — EnPassant
I'm trying to impress on you, but without much success, that consciousness is the root of creativity.
Consciousness unifies and integrates information.
Creativity unifies and integrates information — Pop
Get involved in philosophical discussions about knowledge, truth, language, consciousness, science, politics, religion, logic and mathematics, art, history, and lots more. No ads, no clutter, and very little agreement — just fascinating conversations.
