“Challenging Order to Find the Humanity In Art”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
Our society is full of social norms and expectations that simply make little to no sense. Often we hang onto them without the awareness that they are limiting our creative ability and restraining our expression, as artists and as human beings. By examining the stigmas that surround us, we find a wealth of substance to learn, grow and share in our art, while also freeing ourselves and opening our humanity.
POINT #1: “WE HAVE ALL BEEN CONDITIONED”
-From a very early age, we are all being influenced and indoctrinated into what’s “appropriate” for society. Problem is that a lot of these ideas are somewhat baseless, and in the grand scheme of life completely meaningless.
POINT #2: “TIME TO ASK SOME QUESTIONS”
-Challenging and questioning what we accept as normal in our society is prime ground for an artist. By discovering the ridiculous nature of some of our rules we can express it through our art form and make others question for themselves.
POINT #3: “CONDITIONING SHAPES EVERYTHING”
-We are all products of our environment and conditions — some people are considered well adjusted, others are outcasts of society, and everything in between. When we can learn to see our world in this way, we awaken a compassion and understanding for one another that adds new depth to our humanity and our work.
