So you’re saying, in art a turtle can become a cigarette.
Or a house or a cloud or a fountain pen.
There is no why.
There must be.
A person wants to change reality.
In absurd ways?
Sure. Why not?
Because other people won’t understand.
We keep coming back to that. What other people understand is not a religion, you know. You don’t have to pray to it.
But we all live in the same world.
By that proposition, we’d all have zero imagination.
So imagination breaks out of…
In calculated ways?
In all sorts of ways. You keep breaking out enough, those ways will change.
You’ll make turtles into spaceships.
If you want to.
Who would want to?
I don’t know. Anyone might.
That seems flippant.
So? Is there a law against being flippant?
People want to be taken seriously.
All the time? Forever? I don’t think so.
What kind of imagination is good imagination?
Every person makes that decision.
On what basis?
On whatever basis he chooses.
You keep coming back to the individual.
Who else should I come back to? A group?
What’s wrong with a group?
Just about everything.
A group doesn’t think or invent. After a certain point, it passes stale bread among its members.
So you advise leaving groups.
An artist works according to his own choices.
Suppose his choices are limited?
He has to widen them.
By deciding to.
Just like that?
Just like that.
Very few people can do that.
Really? How do you know?
