Where Does Art Begin?
Art is making a bold impression in the 21st century.
Pulling a Ferris Bueller’s Day Off at a museum may become a thing of the past. Not entirely, of course. But like any industry that invites freedom of expression and innovative ideas, there are pressure points that eventually build to what formally become defined as movements.
In the art world, we are experiencing its intellectual and emotional effects like never before.
Whether we cross a street with an all-too-real 3-D cliff, bike on a sidewalk that lights up to the colors and scheme of van Gogh’s Starry Night or walk in the rain without getting wet, our interaction with art’s infinite imagination is expanding into the immersive.
Future three-dimensional innovations may include both the technological with glasses and the experiential sans glasses. Why just look at art when you can go inside art? There’s no name yet for this still evolving movement.
Perhaps it will be called the “Whether Age,” meaning we have to constantly determine whether we’re in life or art.
