the artist My artist is Ink (sounds conventional, I know). Ink is not an
artist, you might say, as you consider only the (typically human)
applicator of Ink. Perhaps. Mind you, as Ink is applied to a medium,
expressions are evaluated by the applicator, *through* the ink. The
ink, in a sense, is the artist, helping to refine the expression as it
presents itself to the applicator. Ink is the artist. We humans (or
other applicators) simply do its bidding.
the art Ink doesnt create art, per se, it becomes it...augments
it...permits expression of it... Through feedback, it tunes the
applicator to the sense of what is being created. This is the art, not
the result on paper, canvas, skin, or sky.
the beret Inks Beret is an expression of its craft. It is an integral
part of the Artists art, fullfilling a role that blends the Artists
domain with whatever is influenced by it. Inks Beret is whatever
feeling of escape it evokes in the applicator.
