"You mention a key word - conversation!
The "art" is not located in the artifact/image but in the interface
between the artist and the audience facilitated by the work.
ART is a VERB, not a noun, an ACT not a thing, a DIALOG between the artist/creator and experiencer of the work."
That is a quote from my professor Brian Parkin. I posted this quote because it goes along with my post about the importance of explaining your work. I just love that this is a thing that everyone does, but they might not always notice how valuable it is.
