Architecture=Dance

I went to a talk last night by Alfredo Jaar, a Chilean artist living in New York.  He’s incredible, and if you have time: www.alfredojaar.net.  Something I really loved and felt resonated with me was that he started by saying, “I’m an architect, but I make art in the art community.”  Although I can’t claim it like he can, I might try “I’m an architect, but I make dance,” or perhaps I should go for “I’m a choreographer, but I make architecture.”

He also referenced that old idea that an artist only ever makes one work, and each of their works is the attempt to fulfill that one piece.
