Nice quote I found on Reddit:

Art is how we decorate space; music is how we decorate time.

I like it.



Very nice. Although when you think about it a painting is temporal too but less obviously so. The effect of a painting is rarely instantaneous, if you get me.

There’s time in composition too, as in the competition space in a painting. But yes. The crux of it is true and makes you think :slight_smile:

I think there’s a lot to be said for decorating spaces with music too - starting with Brian Eno of course and “Music for Airports” :slight_smile:

I agree with you all in the direction you are thinking but I see it as the substrate being decorated… both time and music are more or less intangible while space and paint are.

in any case sure gets one thinking!

True that, but art, great art transcends time and space, wether it be of aural, ocular, or other.

I loved this sentence untill a delicate friend of mine noticed that farts decorates both space and time…

And that quote is how the author decorates Kleenex.

space…time…what’s the difference?
…just decorate.
