What we call art is the critique of culture, not by its content but by its logical structure. It is the critique of thought. It is a critique, while process of understanding, which must be dynamically made by each person. When it happens in space, is architecture; in time, it is music; in images; it is visual art and so on. Each one of us is permanently built, all the time, by patterns of order. Differentiation patterns. These patterns are in everything we are - in the order of these words, in the space of our homes, our cities; in the music we listen in our cars... All these "environments" are us - they continually build up our thinking, our synaptic complexes, as a kind of dynamic cognitive meta-maps. When we operate elements of discontinuation of those complexes, we make our critique - because only difference produces consciousness. Lighting. Discovery.
