Dealing with time has great differences between different kinds of arts. Still they all aim eternity and their chances are not so different.
The PAST of an artwork begins with the inspiration. When the artist take up to collect information, impressions, he/she lets them flow in the mind untill they get rearranged in a new system. Then the artist has to solidify it in an artwork to be presented.
Another characteristic is how art-forms deal with PRESENT. I have been always fascinated by music. I admire musicians for their capacity to act in real time. If artisans, jewellers, make a mistake we have planty of time to fix it or if everything goes wrong, we just never show our work in public. Musicians, dancers on stage can’t afford this. A false note or a stumbling is disastrous..
As for their FUTURE, some artworks need more luck and care than an other to gain the desired eternity. A golden ring is more likely to survive some centuries under the ground, but without a care for it’s artistic value it can easily end up in a crucible as scrap gold.. The written notes of a song can burn in the first war that comes – but if the society cares, the song can live for centuries. Thus the future of artworks depends just as much on their medium as the care of the society inwhich they have been introduced and where they will end up later.
In my work I wanted to represent the delicacy and strength of artworks. Amber is a solid stone that once was a moving fluid, a defence of trees that often captured the struggle of animals for life. It is a great medium to represent the striving of art for eternity in it’s many different ways.
