Some art is structural, some abstract, and some realistic. Regardless, it seems to me that the best art has a flow to it, a sense of motion that sweeps you up into the story being portrayed and keeps your attention long enough for you to step our of your reality and momentarily into the reality in front of you.
Part of the fun of this is being surprised by art in unexpected places. For example, this building, ironically enough, is an art museum:
It’s a marvelous addition to the city skyline besides being a wonderful space for art enjoyment while actually being a piece of art. You get a sense of motion just looking at it, and then realize sometimes it is actually in motion. You can read about it here.
The grand artistic gesture is inspiring, the realization that an idea can become a physical reality and still portray the spirit of its creation. We compliment our human intelligence with these monuments, yet the flow of art is all around us if we simply pause and look.
Man struggles with the elements available, bending them into the shape of will and intent. Nature follows a few simple rules of physics and biology, and beauty simply grows around us. If technology ever gives us such ease of creation, to grow art instead of making it, what sights might we see in such buildings as above?
