Shall we talk about the meat and potato of .. art?

1. What is imagination?

2. What is art without imagination?

3. What will our world be without imagination?

I look forward to your replies.

1) What you ain't got
2) art without what you ain't got
3) strange question since you're already living without it

Thanks for looking forward to my honest replies

1 - Something we use to fill the blank spaces wherever we find it..
2 - Cold pieces of work that would not be able to link all humans any longer
3 - a dicionary

phantasy.

2. What is art without imagination?

would there be art at all?

3. What will our world be without imagination?

we'd still live in stone age. Cause when not having any imagination there would not be any progress.

1. What is imagination?
Maybe the art of visualising the world/life can be better than it is?

2. What is art without imagination?
Naturalism (not that I have anything against that, just finishing the reasoning I started in (1))

3. What will our world be without imagination?
It would stop turning

We can bomb the world to pieces, but we can't bomb it into peace!

1. A truer way of seeing things, and one where you don't need corrective lenses
2. kitsch
3. like a weekend in Yuba City that never ends (seriously, have you been to Yuba City?)

You know the scene it's very hum-drum
And my favorite song's entitled "Boredom"...

Oh, and may I add that that there thing (POGO) is the most provocative--dare I say sexy--avatar I have ever seen. Get rid of it before you hurt someone...

I have to plead for it once more . I just want a more sexy smiley/avatar that winks his eye in a sexy maybe exagerated way. Now we are limited to this whereas it can be soo much more juicy and greasy p Thereofore...

No

2. What is art without imagination?

3. What will our world be without imagination?

the world would be a better place. We would be dead yes, but the world would survive longer.

-1-

Dreams, according to a group of French scientists, act as "cleansing agent" for disappointments and other unpleasant events of the previous day. Supposedly, one feels refresh from a good night's sleep and is ready to face life's challenges anew.

Imagination - in my book - is a waking dream.

-2-

Much art is produced without imagination. Take, for instance, religious icons in which the concept [religion] is created with ample imagination but the icons is produced from templates by workers who toil so that they and their children will not starve.

Then again, we have often confused the concept with the product and ended up worshipping the latter with devotion and, yes, imagination.

Affirmative. In fact, most people live not only without imagination but also
in quiet desparation. Some has no choice; others go online to express that "imaginative" side of themselves which lay bleeding away in daily lives.

J's answer -- life without imagination = dictionary -- is the best I have read. Thanks, dude.

One of the gifts an artist provides to the world -- and to herself -- is to
lead it away from reality. You can call it an escape, or imaginary bliss.



Fellow forumers:

Many thanks for responding to this and other threads in the Art in Context series. The questions I posed are entirely my own concerns about art, artists and community. Sometimes our paths may cross; other times, my thoughts are different from yours. That said, I hope we are big enough to co-exist in the same forum. If you have comments, ideas and questions for this series, please do reply by posts in the various threads or PM me. Deal?

Have a beautiful day -

Bonita

You do not need to thank me, fact is, with all you write here I am with such imense debt that I would need to build an entire castle with my "thanks" for you.

Thinking a dictionary (not in the portugenglish that I used first ^^; was much like, perhaps, a case of bias against them. Who knows, perhaps I am unfair, but thinking how every great book can be so many other books if they are read with different where, when and whos but the Dictionary no, they have always this trait to remain...Well, as I said perhaps I am unfair with them.

And you know there is a red carpet (or of any other color if you prefer) for you in both forums I work as "responsable person in charge". Be very welcome
