Because time is the great artist. Because every artwork is a statement about the nature of our existence, only ephemeral art is art.
How and why time has become a tool for artists working in a disturbingly fragile medium? How to kill time?
Physical and emotional effects converge in good pictures to suggest the transience of life.
They die slowly, those who abandon a project before starting it
Jean Michel Basquiat, Even transience of time is ephemeral
Everyday artists make art from the stuff of everyday life and therefore rejected by a wide audience.
Arthur Danto, Perishable art is about the ephemeral nature of being because time has an elegiac and mystical intensity
Nothing will last to the end of art.
