We are becoming more and more like machines. We have to produce in real time. Just the fact that real-time is now part of our language is proof enough.
Today, the work of the artist is countercultural to the emerging world view.
The artist asks us to slow down, stop, reflect, pause and to be moved to what's in front of you. The artist asks you to question traditional narratives, to slow down and make meaning in what you observe. You can not achieve this in real-time. You will need to take your time.
Much of the real-time commercial works focus on fear and tearing each other apart online. Red vs. blue, me vs. you, us vs. them, walls vs. bridges. We are training each other to fear and reject.
Art asks you to stop and reflect.
Let go of the conventional norm so that you/we can learn to experience what is arising at this moment.
The answers are only good if they bring forth new ideas, thought and better questions.
Do not give up on being human, yet.
