MAY 2019 / WORK IN PROCESS

"Set to deafening siren call of warning alarms from the scientific community and earth itself, chants for drastic change had reached a crescendo in 2025, and by the end of the 21st century humankind had successfully completed the shift away from an oil driven world infrastructure. Sustainable living systems developed in the early years of the century; electricity was drawn from grids powered by wind and solar energy, and human diet consisted of farmed fish, insects, synthetic proteins, and GMOs. The changes were not enforced, though most individuals complied, and 75 years after the transition had begun modern renewable resource facilities supported the entire global population."

What is art? A fair and simple definition could state that art is any form of human expression used to represent a subject, idea, or emotion. More complex consideration of art leads to questions about all of creation. The earliest drawings on cave walls tens of thousands of years ago are thought to have been used to communicate about what we believe to be the most basic needs of human life. With primitive tools these ‘artist’s’ helped to lay the foundations for an evolution that has seen artists’ conceptions used to convincingly portray everything from singing + dancing cartoon mice to the notion of heaven itself, or space, a frontier once only seen through artist’s renderings now accessible because of advances in human engineering and design. Just as photography and television revolutionized the art world in the early modern era more recent technological advances have already drastically begun to change the way art is accessed, viewed and created. Less than 500 years ago renaissance masters had arguably reached the pinnacle of classical sculpture with works like Michelangelo’s ‘David’. Today, fields such as robotics, nanotechnologies, and holographic imaging add new dimensions to the forum of discussion about what exactly qualifies a work to be ‘sculpture’. As modes of human expression evolve so too does any genuine attempt to answer the question "What is art?”
