Art

I occasionally define music as just being the effective creation and release of tension.

Then again, the storyteller's art is, in part, a matter of what you reveal and what you conceal, paced by that same thing: creation and release of tension. When do you reveal this fact? That one? How much of it? Allude to it, but don't reveal it yet?

Then again, as Eric Idle just said, "Context is everything."

By golly, I already do incorporate some of these thought into my photographic art. What to reveal. What to hide. What to allude to. How. When. What might happen if I were to consciously concentrate on this aspect for a while?

Of course, a photo is a static piece, rather than a flow-over-time like music and story. But still....

I must think about this....
