Found this on the log Lateral Action. Brian Eno and Will Wright are two artists / innovators whose work I like and this is pretty nerdy stuff in an artsy way.
The most interesting comment to me is when Eno talks about how much ‘art’ actually lies in the mind of the observer. This isn’t always true but it’s broadly true because our brains want to find connections and meaning. In filmmaking, you see this going back to Sergei Eisenstein’s montage theory.
