In early 2013 I made this graphic using Google Docs drawing tools. I feel it is already buried deep within my site so I wanted to conjure it back to the fore. I called the drawing Art = Form + Content. It succinctly depicts my primary mode of art making, and is of course also a play on the somewhat dusty yin/yang aspects of modern art: form and content. We have a web form, which could be a customized form or default provided one. We enter some sort of human-content-action into the form, then we click the "Art" save button to complete the content art creation process.
That about sums it up. The resulting web content could be visually customized, but it doesn't need to be. It could be categorized, tagged, listed, etc, but it doesn't need to be. It could be considered "Art" but it doesn't need to be. It only needs to live on the web. This is your act, your creation. It probably has a title or id, and a date. It happened. It lives. And hopefully its existence on the web is a positive one, or at least neutral. If not then you'll just have to try clicking the Art button again.
