I guess you can tell by now that...I'M OPEN. I've been open but, I'm even more open to letting more people know I'm open...if that makes sense.

The problem alot of ARTISTS have is they're STUCK IN A BOX. Not just artists...but, people in general...but, I'm only speaking about artists now. They only like what they like and reject anything new. They won't bother to search for something outside of their comfort zone. Therefore, the only place left for you is...THE BOX.

Copying those same drawings from those same artists. Worshipping the same styles for years. Master one thing and never experimenting or giving any credence to anything else. Not trying to understand why "This" is a hit and "That" isn't. Always asking "remember when..."

You get the picture. There's no progression.

Now, a CREATIVE PERSON thinks OUTSIDE THE BOX. Sometimes alot of cats are just a little too artistic for me. But, true creativity...thinking in a non-conventional way to bring about something refreshing and emotionally charged...that's something.

Enough talk...if you know about these video, smile and consider yourself "in the know."
If not, who cares...look at them and judge for yourself. In my opinion, I like Healy's version better for the emotional connection. It's stronger in that aspect. Kogler's version is what I call (not in a bad way) an "eye-fuck." It is literally the video equivalent of a Dali painting. Either way, both are fine examples of creative people thinking outside the box. Much respect, peace, and blessings to James Healy, Clemens Kogler,and Chris Clark.

Keep searching...Keep learning.

I'm always thinking of Hicky Burr, but maybe that's a little too far outta the box.

I'm up in the air about this right now, I try to be open minded but some modern art makes me really question those beliefs.

@ Chris - nice link...I just wish I could download it and listen to it.
The radio station was cool!

@ stephen - I'm with you. My thing is just to be aware of what's out there and not completely shut down. Somewhere down the line, something in both of these videos is going to come out in my work in some shape or form that wouldn't have if I didn't at least experience them. My job is to put it through my own filter.

geez.... both those videos made my heart beat ridiculously fast... no other way of describing it. definitely glad I visited your blog tonight. there were aspects of both videos that were slightly uncomfortable but completely captivating. perhaps another way of thinking of a piece of work that has "stepped out of the box" is in its ability to make us feel completely dislocated after viewing it... everyone needs a good shaking up...something about it could jog thoughts you didn't know you were capable of having... and these works do just that. I have to go create now. excuse meeeeeee ;)

Hey, Tyree...

I couldn't agree with you more about the values of breaking outside the box.

You've heard me rant about this before, but I think it's a point that merits constant re-hashing...

I enjoyed these films on a certain level, but even if I had hated them, I know full well that viewing stuff gives you ideas.

Viewing good stuff, of course, is valuable and inspiring and it gives you ideas, but it becomes really easy or tempting to become OVERLY influenced by it and you run the risk of copying.

In a weird way, viewing stuff that's WELL DONE but not necessarily your "cup of tea" is actually MORE valuable because it makes you think about stuff in ways that you wouldn't have otherwise. You can then apply what you've learned to your OWN work and it makes your work just that much more unique.

I could go on and on...

Anyway, great post.
