The Art of Living Dangerously

The only certainty for art lies in the belief that it too occupies the realm of the uncertain. Art doesn't measure reality; and it certainly doesn't seek to represent or interrogate the present in order to affirm what was known all along. Art in the face of uncertainty celebrates what is uncertain, and yet in the process, it affirms the future can be different.
