Understanding The Art of Nothing

Friday, May 30th, 2014

What is ‘nothing’?

Dictionary.com says ‘Nothing’  [nuhth-ing]  

noun

no thing; not anything; naught: to say nothing.
no part, share, or trace (usually followed by of  ): The house showed nothing of its former magnificence.
something that is nonexistent.
nonexistence; nothingnessThe sound faded to nothing.
something or someone of no importance or significance: Money is nothing when you’re without health

 

I struggle to understand the art of ‘nothing’. A blank canvas or a performing piece with just a woman standing still for 8hrs. Is it suppose to question the boundaries of ‘what is art?’ Like Marcel Duchamp’s ‘Fountain’. Maybe I’m not artsy, eclectic, academic or conceptual-minded enough. Or maybe the simplicity is beyond me. As an artist I like to create. Make something with my hands. So since there is no physical or tangible object in front of me I’m lost on the nothing being art. maybe it’s because I can’t stand still for 5 minutes let alone 5 hrs. Maybe my mind isn’t still enough to appreciate the moment of silence and stillness.

Hmm Maybe if I keep going to yoga someday I will understand the art of nothingness. Just breathe. Just Zen.

Every Day Is Special

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

Sometimes days are long. They seem to drag. But the older you get, time starts to fly by. This year has already gone by in such a blur. Today was one of those days.  And while nothing significant happened, I was reminded at the very end of the day, that every day is special . . .
