“A work of art is something new in the world that changes the world to allow itself to exist.  What that means is that the context you’re making something in, the world itself is different when you start and when you end. So you’re not just going from point A to point B within a static known world. You’re in the point A world figuring out how to lead from questions and risk developing things that are kind of unknown as to whether they’ll succeed or fail. If they succeed, you have created a point B world. You’ve made something that then changes the world to make space for itself in a very small or large way. These don’t have to all be grand gestures, just kind of acts of putting a dent in the universe as the saying goes of trying to affect change, to show up in a way of consequence in your personal life, professional life and the world in general.” – Amy Whitaker
