art: the art experience

In the gallery. After exchanging a deep connection with an inanimate object- well this in itself if a bit odd. Of course it's an illusion. But we want to believe we're in that 2D painting. That instinct, empathy.

Following this dysfunctional interaction, like talking to yourself, if we're with company we want them to share the very same experience. We watch them exchanging a deep connection with an inanimate object. Satisfying. It's particularly unsatisfying if you're company doesn't get it. You'll argue the character of this inanimate object until you both agree or agree to disagree. This isn't weird behaviour. This is cultured and civilised society.
