Moment #11552 – Non-Communication
Communication in art is a bit of a tricky subject. How does one remain true to their own artistic vision, while endeavoring to communicate to a larger audience? There’s no easy answer to that. But there are definitely times when I am left wondering what the artist or performer wanted to convey. I suppose that it becomes more of an issue for performance art or dance. Like the hour long dance show I just watched, which I honestly didn’t understand at all. I personally feel that if you are going to ask people to come and watch you perform, you should try to impart something to them, rather than just gestating within your own little world. There is value in abstraction, and a time and place for the incomprehensible. I just don’t think that time and place is in a dance show or live performance.
