My new friend, Cutter, asked me about a week ago what my art is. I crafted a long winded response in a journal I’m keeping for another class, but I’ve decided to throw it out the window to share two links with you today.
Writing is my art, because humanity is to me living, breathing art. Every human has a story. It may be a boring story or a poorly written story, but it’s there. To me, music, sculpture, poetry, etc. are extensions of the humans who created them.
Below are two fantastic examples of why I look at humans as the ultimate art form. The first link is to an article about the New England Patriots v. Cincinnati Bengals game on Sunday, where the Patriots cheerleaders opted to wear Bengals jerseys for a deeply powerful reason.
The second link is to an interview between Raven-Symoné and Oprah about Raven’s sexuality, but more importantly, her desire to just be human.
