Creative Theft

When something is accessible it is easy to take. The context often indicates what, and whether I have permission to do so.

If I walk into a gallery and view a painting I take the experience of light away with me, but not the object. When I hear music at a concert I take the experience of sound, but not a recording of it. When I am with someone who gives their time, I take the experience of their presence.

I take far more than meets the eye or ear. I steal a look, I take my chance and with this, I make.
