Robert Anton Wilson – The joy of Art

‘’The joy of art is trying to convey what you perceive so that other people will perceive it more or less the same way. Art is a form of seduction….there are rapists in the intellectual world, they become politicians the seducers become artists. We try and seduce people into our reality tunnels (rather) than leading them there with a gun. We are trying to get them into our reality. Our reality tunnel or our reality labyrinth. Which ever it is. In my case it’s a reality labyrinth.‘’ – Robert Anton Wilson 1932 – 2007

the sound quality s awful so I typed it out for you, thats just the type of guy I am.

Alan Moore on Art and Magick

”Writers and people who had command of words were respected and feared as people who manipulated magic. In latter times I think that artists and writers have allowed themselves to be sold down the river. They have accepted the prevailing belief that art and writing are merely forms of entertainment. They’re not seen as transformative forces, that can change a human being, that can change a society. They are seen as simple entertainment, things with which we could fill 20 minutes, half an hour, while we’re waiting to die.

It is not the job of artists to give the audience what the audience want. If the audience knew what they needed, then they wouldn’t be the audience, they would be the artist. It is the job of artists to give the audience what they need.” – Alan Moore
