chance / theme
To receive and incorporate that which occurs free of one's own agency: spontaneous, inclusive, surprising. References without intention make for a wide and novel vision. The rhythm and rhyme of the random require effort to hear and see; both the creation and the reward are inexhaustible.
Themes represent basic categories of thought, emotion, or value. While our assignment of themes may at times seem arbitrary or whimsical, they serve to link together artists and movements along non- hierarchial pathways. Follow the themes to look for new disciplines that share qualities with those you already like, or to open up new worlds of Art and Culture.
