Manifestation (or "Why do I upload my work?)

Originally posted in evan5.deviantART, but fits here too.

Art is not something easy to define. We could say, too vaguely perhaps, that it is some sort of representation organized by some medium in a human way. Usually the media are audial, visual and haptic (or mixed).

This is a definition that contains the human psyche; for in the term representation we can find the primal function of the psyche: representing for itself images perceived by an environment (einbildung). This representation occurs de novo; -it has its cause in the environmental perception, but is not determenistic- for a cause can play a small part in the representation, but can't determine in full which representation will de decised by the psyche to occur. So, the image constructed is both rational and spontaneous.

So, choosing to upload my work I do NOT think I possess any aesthetic truth or superiority. Some times, I even think that, should I have seen this work by other creators, I wouldn't even like it.

If anyone feel insulted by this definition of art, they can call my work constructions. Because some could feel that art is a representation that makes a new form of something. As also said for the aesthetic part, I also do NOT find my work so innovative.

It certainly though, represents some of my thoughts, moments or black-outs. I, only, can assure you about that (and I do). And these moments (etc.) I choose to share with you. Being a human, means having a social psyche; a psyche that has grown socialized and socialising.

From the (abstract form of the) Mother, the first Other, to friends, colleagues etc., the development of the psyche is always social. The person carries society in his psyche. There is no contradiction or conflict between the personal and the social. (I think.)

So, sisters and brothers, when you see my work,
respect and enjoy!
