Do you remember that voice in your head when you were a little kid which said that all the world around you is full of wonders?
You could stare at stars and think about the miraculous infinity of the universe. You can watch the clouds and discover strange beasts which kept constantly changing. You could even hear this voice asking do we all really exist or all of this is just a mirage?
This voice is still inside you no matter how old you are now. Maybe it is buried deep inside underneath daily worries and insecurities, maybe it’s barely audible at times but it’s still there. And it is indispensable in the process of creating art because it helps you feel constant curiosity about the world.
So we have to remember something important we forgot since childhood.
Making art helps you do it. Making art helps you immerse yourself in the fantasy world that you had as a child. Making art helps you forget the sorrows of the world.
Making art helps us play.
