'After all, why shouldn't we demand a certain effort from the reader? We always explain everything to him. In the end, he gets fed up with being treated with such contempt.'

-Raymond Queneau

'When people ask what art is about, they remove it from what it can do for the mind. When people ask what it is; 
then the discussion gets interesting.'

-Matthew Weinstein

I always think this. Don't ask what a piece of art is about, ask what it is. Same with music. If something is created and never existed before it IS something in itself, unknown and new. Yes, sure, influences and stolen fragments may remain, may be referenced, but it has it's own imprint. 

Art can be a physical or sonic representation of a thought process. 
What would my thoughts look like if they were three dimensional?
