  • Hi Pete,

    Hmmmmm….enjoyed watching the classroom documentation….

    Ridding ourselves the “romantic” notions surrounding the myth of the”artist”

    First two items:

    1. Stop using the term artist.
    2. Stop using the term art.

    This myth has the ego to thank for its existence.
    And there is nothing more destructive than believing in your own myth.
    The premise is an artificial construct; how can one genuinely move forward from an artificial construct? (Why would anyone want to?)

  • This seems to be more of a debate about authenticity and presentation…both of which depend highly on context and intent, much like art itself.

    I’m interested to get your take on the replacement terms for artist and art.

    In addition I’d like to know who the source is for “There is nothing more destructive than believing in your own myth.” I think the correlate is also true…”There is nothing more destructive than *not* believing your own myth.”

    Which brings up questions of identity and self…

    I understand the Freudian references, however I think they are taken a bit out of context.
