I had a fun eureka moment this morning while crossing the bridge over the Iowa River:
Fine Art = the visual dialogue between an artist and the viewer(s)
Craft = the haptic dialogue between an artist and his/her materials
I know, I know, why do we need to dredge up the old argument of Art vs. Craft? Well I've been feeling lately a slow drift away from art and towards craft in myself, so I'm working on defining my own movement from one to the other, or to some place in between. Also notice that in both cases the 'maker' is called an artist, which points to the fact that we are essentially talking about two sides of the same coin.
