Each one of us is an artist.
To realize that – the words of Godard makes sense.
“Three polarities, three contradictions, three paradoxes of filmography :- visual vs narrative, fiction vs documentary & reality vs abstraction.”
Though he was talking about films, it is true for the apparently cold, unforgiving world of mathematics and science.
Take for instance, the famous equation E = mc^2 . It is a narrative as well as a visual. It began from the world of imagination flowing into the strict rationale of science and its documentation. And it portrays a fine balance between reality and abstraction.
So the apparent distinction between the different disciplines like art, science, economics, history and literature is meaningless. There is an artist as a practitioner behind each of these.
The artist tells us a story through poems, stories, narratives, films, painting, a finely crafted argument, analysis, cold logic, drama, design etc..
We are continually telling our stories and that is what makes our world.
In that way the world and its people are enriched.
What story do you have?
Simply tell it.
