About TIME - #89

1) I wonder what the ratio is of minutes spent creating vs. others’ time spent viewing the creation? Based on my own life experience and conversations with other artists, think the ratio would be at least 240:1.

2) Is great art defined as something that can last many years? Or is great art defined as something that showcases the incredibly fragile and impermanent? 

3) What was the first piece of art ever made? Who created it? Even though humans have only been around to create art during the past few million years, wasn’t the creation of the universe itself the first work of art? Doesn’t that make anything and everything within the universe a work of art?

4) Each failure from an artist is a test to see how much they truly believe in their vision. Great art is born out of struggle, and a great artist is born out of their ability to continue to fail and withstand the storm. In order to succeed, the artist must encounter many failures until their vision manifests itself into something spectacular. My question is this: is a work of art one specific idea and lasting creation, or rather the artist themselves as they move through time?
