The notions of beauty and design have very little to do with what is essential in art. Art is not a product. It is a process. In the visual arts, it does not conform to design or architectural imperatives. 

It is an independent being, a subversive agitator in a world dedicated to outdated concepts of beauty and pleasure preoccupied with the material side of life. Art is a terrorist that confronts our natural tendency to conform with insolent arrogance and disdain…and rightfully so. 

Sustainable innovative advances are impossible in an environment dominated by the desire to please others.
