What Is Art?

If only the spectators or auditors are infected by the feelings which the author has felt, it is art.
(Tolstoy)

Oh, I guess to make this one art, I have to tell you what I felt when I did this shot: "*#'#*~~~##***, I should really try harder to focus!"

:)))))

    Many thanks for the welcome mail.
    What is art? Does this photo answers? Or — the picture offered another question — more for feeling than for intellect. . . .
    The theme is profound: HJSyberberg in his Parsifal-installation (Documenta vii) shows the change of st. Graal radiance from red to white (and Mark the Gnostic in his pseudomiracle change white wine in transparent chalice to red, as st. Irinæus report), — blood will be light, flash will be spirit, hard work will be joyful contemplation of the fruits, — but the light may become bloody, spirit may become fleshly and contemplation may become as a hard work. All this is about art. And what is about photo? Does its question is “profound”? The spectator stops rhetorical talking about work — and looks — and that`s good result (Wagner`s Parsifal asked: “Wer ist der Gral?” Gurnemanz replayed: “Das sagt sich nicht. . . Sieh!”) . . . But does the pause in talking is really deep?
    Minimalism is in search of the symbol that pose obstacle for mind. This picture is good essay on such way, but not the invention. Standard format with nonrealistic minimal image and galvanizing question in title — bella idea! — But the frame of invitation mail substantially supports this paradox.
    The invention of said Mark Rothko (better — of the abstract expressionism) was the colored surface. When we abstract image from material surface — we may activate some other elements for replenishment of the language, e.g. integrate “literary” title, citation, author`s comment into image (imitation of poster). This is not the question of this successful attempt. But this set up a base for the successful work.

    Art is what you create with your imaginary thought.

    I'm guessing that art, like beauty is in the eye of the beholder, i find beauty in strange things at times, but we all on here have the gift of looking at things in a different way , so we are very lucky in that respect.

    I think that photography can be an art form and that digital has helped push this now, film to me was good but digital can't be beat now.
