Art is a meaningful commit senseless things.
We are at the beginning again, we live in an Island Culture of the the Stone Age. A human being defines one's habitat by a distance that can be covered in one – two days. Thousands years ago this territory was defined by a foot passage of the same duration, by availability of water and the distance to a horizon. The space that you see around is your island. And there is an abyss outside this isle. This abyss can be neither controlled nor understood. For understanding we need to give names to everything, when there were no written language, people used rock paintings and cave art, in order to define their position in the world, to identify themselves, to decide "who are not we", by contradiction, saying: "we are not buffalos", "we are not mammoths", "we are not birds", but who we are? And then we are finding ourselves as a human beings, i.e. humanity bearers. Nowadays we can pass around the world in one day. An ocean, abyss and outer space surround us again. We are once again inside an island culture again that was peculiar to human race before, only at the very beginning, in the Stone Age.
