Sharing the deep of my soul

“Life has taught us that loving doesn’t mean looking into one’s eyes.
together towards the same goal.”
– Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

In a report, because that is what we are talking about, Sharing is the granting and sharing of personal space and resources. Sharing, in other words, is the meeting point between being together in the relationship and making the relationship together. It takes a little effort to imagine the relationship: a territory in which the Four Strengths reign wisely, a source of vital energy and creative effervescence. However, as the Master teaches us, “the soul never thinks without images”: Aristotle dixit, and we fecimus.

The aesthetic as “open concept” and the artistic as “closed concept”.

In the broadest sense “aesthetic” is what you feel, from the Greek aisthanomai, feel.

The aisthesis is a very intense sensation. But the aisthesis should not be confused with ekstasis, ecstasy, from the Greek eksistemi, to be out of oneself. In mystical ecstasy man is out of himself, in God. In the aisthesis man is intensely himself, in the experience of another by himself who instead exalts his identity.

“Closed” (or “restricted”) concept is a well-defined concept, opposed to “open” concept and “family resemblance”. “Artistic” is a “closed concept”, and is a part of “aesthetic”, which is an “open concept”. The aesthetic is a very open concept, which contains in itself an infinity of operations, conservative or revolutionary. The “closed concept” of art and the “open concept” of aesthetics are part of a “generative aesthetics”, which studies the origin and functions of aesthetic and artistic operations primarily from an anthropological and psychological point of view.

In the field of aesthetics one of the operations, the most common or even banal, is the experience of beauty. But the experience of the artistic is mistakenly included in the experience of beauty, which is something else.

In the “closed concept” of art, there are three definitions that integrate each other:

1) the work of art is the transformation of a meaning into a successful form
(transfiguration, transmutation);

2) The work of art is silence that speaks to the silence that is within us.
Narrative cannot therefore be translated into words. The means of communication is the contemplative act and consequently the emotional one. In a unique subjective dialogue.

3) the work of art is “still time”.
All objects communicate something, but only the narratives tell (say) a meaning. Any object, beyond its functions of use, does not narrate, it only has a form without narration; if instead the common form becomes a successful form, we have an object of craftsmanship, design, decoration, etc.. It can be interpreted in infinite meanings, i.e. it can be given infinite attributes, but it does not communicate a true intentional meaning (a system of meanings) of the author. Quite another thing is to transform the meaning of a narrative into a successful form. Only in a narrative is there a meaning that can be transformed into a successful form. Where there is no meaning to be transformed into a successful form, no work of art can be given.

The work of art is therefore always narration (discourse, text, in semiotic terms), and originally it can only be a narration.

I have a lot of stories to tell but, for the first time, I would like my words to be replaced by the works of my artists, souls capable of entering into harmony and harmony with the underlying emotions of my existence, to tell the exciting and beautiful moments of my life, which I love and want to share. Also telling the beauty in a state of pain. Because “beautiful” is not only a way of appearing, but also of feeling, thinking and even living. A representation so powerful as to involve all our senses, and that requires constant “maintenance” so that it remains faithful to experience, from desires to the reality shared with the pillars of my existence: women.
