I believe we have been operating in a way that I feel aligns with my higher principles, seeking a conscious understanding of that which is by nature mysterious. An artist is supposed to reach for great heights, thus revealing unknown potentials, and to do so he/she must be open to a wide range of knowledge.

An artist requires the skills of a philosopher and the working process of the scientist, although his goal is something different, it is art, something that inspires others and keeps alive a great tradition of humanistic celebration. Art is about thriving, for only a species that does not need to focus constantly on survival can afford to make art, and we are walking very close to losing that, and so now, we need artists to dig deep and find consensus in order to make the kind of art that reminds humanity of its strengths.

we are walking very close to losing that

    Thanks again Akbar. I’m trying to make the actual entries art. Really looking at how to turn blogging into a valid art form. I think we’re onto something here. It’s been fun to see the evolution of it. I could see curating a show from Globatron blog entries alone in the near future.

    Also, I’m going to start to disable comments on about half my post from now on as many of them I don’t want commentary. Glad I kept them open on this one as I wanted to get your input on our collaboration.

    Thanks for the thumbs up. Thumbs up on your input and continual pot stirring. Please sir, keep it up.
