Eye opening Perspectives....

This week was just wonderful, in terms of me making connections and meeting people
here in Basel. I came here to draw my own conclusions about what is art today for me.
I've been going to openings and visiting museums. There is a opening today that I plan
to attend. 
I've seen art here that has made me say, "wait a minute now", but the point for me is to
understand the depth of what art is for some people other then myself.  
This is the home of some of your great masters. One artist that has caught my attention
here is Joseph Beuys. Beuys was a German artist and I personally love his installation work,
and the reason why is because I see myself in the works of Bueys. What do I mean by this comment, I see myself in the works. There is nothing new here under the sun and spirit law is the reason why we do what we do. At the same time, I've concluded that everything is connected to a greater source of power that
makes us create. Was I see in Joseph Beuys' work is that same energy that makes me
create my own art every day. It's the energy to create and it's in all of us.

  1. Hi Tyree! I love reading about your adventures in Basel. If you happen to go to Berlin, make sure you visit the Tacheles Kunsthaus. I found the place by accident, and it made me think of the Heidelberg Project. It is definitely a wonderful place to find a reference to what connects us as "Art servers". Or the greater source of power as you describe it. Enjoy your time in Basel, and keep on getting inspired. Europe has that something that it's impossible to escape, is so inspiring.
