|Absurdism is the philosophical school of thought stating that, regardless of the human need to find inherent meaning in life, all efforts to do so will fail because no such meaning exists, at least not that the human mind can understand. Therefor, all meaning that we can understand was made by us. Absurdists accept the responsibility of making meaning in our own lives. Absurdist art is created with this awareness, that human minds are the only source of the meaning we communicate through it. It's not (strictly speaking) surrealism, and any resemblance to existentialism or nihilism is purely coincidental . . . okay, no it's not -- they're closely related. But still different things.|
Anyway, since it's my choice: I choose to stand in the sunlight, and show both the beauty revealed and the shadows cast. And whatever else catches my eye, or give me a giggle.
