Excitement



The main feature of art is excitement.  Art, in its highest form is the things that excite the mind regardless, or in spite of being: not well made; or not properly made; accidentally made; thoughtlessly made; a poor example of what's been done before; unimpressive; not well received; hard to label; poorly presented; not well explained; retrieved from the garbage.

If the "thing" we're looking at ignites wonder or a chain reaction of strange new thoughts and feelings, mental aromas, then it's art and those who agree readjust their minds and welcome more of it.  Those who disagree, find solace and support in pointing out that this "thing" is: not well made; or not properly made; accidentally made; thoughtlessly made; a poor example of what's been done before; unimpressive; not well received; hard to label; poorly presented; not well explained; retrieved from the garbage.

(Image was made probably from a fractal that was filtered with a lot of things (India Ink, for one) particularly one which I no longer have handy that does the circular thing.  Finally it was filtered with uscomic.8bf to give it the high contrast colors and 8-color palette.)
