ecstatic / theme
A supra-normal state of inspiration. Ecstasy is born of extreme circumstances, of divinity, of drugs, of effort or experience beyond the commonplace. Ecstatic describes poets, mystics, dervishes, ethereal and ectoplasmic entities; it is infused with light and also glows with light. It fills, overwhelms, and transports. Tears and laughter are its symptoms,
as are screams and breathless silence.
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.
