i think thinking of works as moments which are experienced and responded to by a culture demonstrates how silly the entire project of archiving actually is
as if capturing a work will somehow capture the moment along with it, instead of just completely removing it from any and all context
i think if all of the time and money and energy that went into archival went into chronicling instead, actually making record of moments as they happen, the world would be one heck of a more interesting place
@onethousandtwentyfour im not sure I agree, it feels to me that theres something about being able to experience the art that captures the moment way better than a chronicle, especially with the way that art which captures things really well isn't always well received in its moment
@onethousandtwentyfour perhaps its different by medium, or maybe by genre.
