ART is the thickening of space that occurs when two or more gifted-givers exchange gifts of any kind. ART requires a gift-object, a giver-object, and a gifted-object be present, but ART itself is not any one of those objects. ART is the community of gifted-giver objects coming together in active exchange. When those objects engage in such exchange, the space between the objects becomes viscous, their object edges become soft, and an acute confusion of object-distinction sets in. (Please note: one or more of the objects in the community of gifted-giver objects can be a conventional fine art object, but it does not need to be for ART to occur.)
This thickening, softening, and confusion is ART and is a powerful force that solves problems, even as it creates new and better problems.
ART is the luminous afterlife of art after the end of art.
