“As a writer, I’m trying to represent a ten-dimensional world with a two-dimensional tool which is writing.”
~ Junot Diáz (Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao)
Isn’t that what all artists do? Some use the two-dimensional tools of words on a page, notes on a staff, or paint on a canvas. Others use three-dimensional tools of fabric, clay, wood, stone, steel, or glass. That’s what art does—it portrays and makes sense of the complexities, the multiple dimensions, of life.
