overflowing / theme
Pouring over the edges, uncontained, unconstrained: the overflowing drips color, sound, and mood over the expected boundaries. It may or may not be overwhelming to the one who experiences it, but the overflowing always overwhelms its container. It is excessive (although the excessive is not always overflowing; for instance, something may be excessively dense).
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.
