Freedom?

For some reason freedom is defined for us citizens politically. It seems something as precious and personal as freedom needs additional input from those outside the policy and law fields.

How does the artist define it? The inventor? the Businessman? The scientist? The psychologist? The clergy?

It seems a definition is very complex, how can it be applied universally?

This demands another question, what isn’t freedom? Is the real, day to day, filled with freedom options?

If we are bound to our reality by our definitions, conditions or stories that we surround ourselves with, then these questions are not trivial at all.

Definitions, conditions and stories can change. Change and creativity are in the same family. GET CREATIVE!

Art is applied philosophy

Art is more like resolving the problem that YOU (the artist) want to resolve.
Thus art could be a great meal, an elegant calligraphy, a new political party, the choice to add a scribble on a piece of blank paper, or not.
Okay, so this is a rather expanded definition of art. Perhaps a definition of applied creativity?
Actually as I think about this. Art and creativity are considered interrelated. This causes a cheapening of both.
Perception, expanded notions and re-definitions of art, value, and creativity are of utmost importance as we pass into this new millenium.
