Art is Conflict

Art is created as an escape from the real world.

Because of this, art is always connected to conflict: art is about separating yourself from the present physical reality for an alternative dream world.

Because, naturally, there's a conflict between reality & illusion.

It’s worth noting the word conflict does not mean “a serious disagreement.”

Conflict originally meant “to strike together.”

So the way the shots in your movie strike together, create meaning.

The way your work of art strikes against the real word, creates meaning.

The way you strike ideas around in your head, also, creates art.

Art wins when it depicts the various clashes of life.

Love and hate.

Wealth and poverty.

Organic and artificial.

Feelings & ideas are generated from the way things strike against each other.
