open-ended / theme
The open-ended does not close its borders, does not offer a final stitch. It may be rough or unfinished, frayed and disorganized. But, then again, it may be supremely confident that it can and will handle whatever may come its way; confident that the world changes, that moods shift, that change is inevitable, and that ambiguity is the order of things.
Themes represent basic categories of thought, emotion, or value. While our assignment of themes may at times seem arbitrary or whimsical, they serve to link together artists and movements along non- hierarchial pathways. Follow the themes to look for new disciplines that share qualities with those you already like, or to open up new worlds of Art and Culture.
