Coming from a place of playful searching and now in retrospect accepting my ignorance in that search, I must say I have learned a lot from the Art Laws project. And as far as laws go I’ve always tried to break them in the practice of art. I think we all have. That is in the nature of being an artist. One painting professor told me to never use black. I asked him why and he said, “just because”. So I have used a ton of black ever since.
But with that said I do believe in the wisdom of the majority. Democracies would have not been founded without some sort of consensus on laws or major legal documents. Throughout this entire process Akbar and myself have argued that it is possible to seek truth through one’s art. That it is not a futile endeavor. Now I personally believe that is possible and can seek such truths in my own artwork, but I will concede to the majority and write this law. There is no truth in art. Everything is relative.
What say you?
