The Creative Act

“… bad art is still art in the same way that a bad emotion is still an emotion.

In the creative act, the artist goes from intention to realization through a chain of totally subjective reactions.

The result of this struggle is a difference between the intention and its realization, a difference which the artist is not aware of.

In other works, the personal ‘art coefficient’ is like a arithmetical relation between the unexpressed but intended and the unintentionally expressed.”

Marcel Duchamp
