The power of art

Art is subjective – the take out is (and should be) unique to everyone.

An artist’s role should be to create something that provokes a reaction/a point of view – whether it is a validation of the viewers beliefs or contradicts them; the point is that it makes them think and reach.  Yes, they may have been created with a particular perspective in mind but it’s effect will only be impacted by the recipients’ interpretations of it.

Which is why some of the things the people in the talks below have done are very powerful. In my opinion.
