"Any time we experience a work of art for the first time, the only reason we notice it at all is because it completes a circuit within us and engages our attention." #QotD





"Any time we experience a work of art for the first time, the only reason we notice it at all is because it completes a circuit within us and engages our attention.
    "It’s important to try and refrain from criticising the work; simply respond to it naturally.
    "In order for a work of art to survive the moment of surprise, the work must contain mystery... No matter how much you know it, as in knowing nature or people, the mystery is what keeps our interest."

          ~ architect Bruce Goff, in an interview with Robert Morris
