Art Is Rising


You’ve studied water for a lifetime in order to make sculptures of art.

“Of art?”

I meant, of course: Sculptures of water.

“But it keeps collapsing all the time.”

Still, you’re interested in water.

“Yes. Water has something never-ending about it.”

Most people would say that it doesn’t make much sense, but almost, to claim that.

“Yes. I just mean that water flowing around and around has something never-ending about it.”

But doesn’t that require an engine?

“In a way.”

(Note: “Art is rising” (“Kunsten stiger”) is a danish ironic expression first used by a sailor who helped land the ship of danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen. It’s still in common use today.)
