The Global PathMarkers as Artists -
Consider the Global PathMarkers individuals as the Art and as Artists. They are examples of the creative process expressing in the form of lives lived as artists creating new forms (and you thought recycling meant keeping stuff out of the trash stream).
19th century American author Mark Twain, of all the individuals represented in the Global PathMarker collection, is the one most clearly related to the art field. His word pictures show a highly skilled and sophisticated literary artist who employed the parable to insert seeds of thinking into the unconscious of people who otherwise could not have heard the lessons.
Art is one of the ten areas of concern selected as focus points for The Future Is Now World Peace Celebration - these concerns form a "complex" of dynamic interrelated human activities that cannot be separated out from one another.
If your primary concern is art then you will also be involved in communications, education, scientific discoveries and technological advances that influence the choices of mediums . . . for instance the Impressionists were able to escape the studio and go out into the field to capture light, facilitated by oil paints being premixed and portable in tubes.
Art is also where we can see the future revealed in the symbols arising out of the personal unconscious of those most sensitive (the artist) to the collective unconscious of the hoi polloi (Gk, the masses).
Our collective hope is linked to tipping a critical mass of individuals into awareness of humanity's creative power, responsibility, and effect, as evidenced by the condition of the physical environment and spiritual loss, and are willing take on the task of making their life their art.
“What we play is life.” Louis Armstrong, American Jazz musician
