Arts Reflecting Living Systems

By Nik Dee Dahlstrom

 
Introduction

 

This viewpoint presents an experience in which the reader is asked to engage.  The author summarizes: Performing arts is a living system reflecting a living system. It is a collective process where the separate entities play their parts in order to contribute to the whole. As is the orchestra or a film-production. How then does that compare with living systems as artistic monograms presented by the single artist? Is the meeting of the creator and receiver a passive or active one or even interactive and collaboratory? And in a world of new technology; what is that artistic reflection versus reality, versus virtual reality, versus augmented reality?
