illusive / theme
Enchantment or peripheral vision? How serious a game is "seeming"? A rhetorical flourish, a costume, a wishful thought. Tricks and vile deceit, or a playful seven veils? The endless handkerchief out of a breast pocket might be sleight-of-hand -- but you'd rather it were real. And so it is.
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.
