Art Transforms blogArt Transforms — Computer Art by kenne

Art transforms us not with what it contains but with what it creates in us —
the constellation of interpretations, revelations, and emotional truths illuminated —
which, of course, is why the rise of the term “content” to describe creative output online
has been one of the most corrosive developments in contemporary culture.
A poem — or an essay, or a painting, or a song — is not its “content”;
it transforms us precisely by what cannot be contained, by what is received and interpreted.

— Ursula K. Le Guin

  1. Interesting and timely as yesterday I was talking to a 90 year old musician, who told me it was the interpretation of the song that was most important. All forms of art seem to take on that importance. I’ll give that more thought next time I write a story as well.
