Illuminati

Quote of the Day

The idea that Art should, only ever be a mirror to reality has always seemed ass-backwards to me, given that Art is always and everywhere well-groomed and impeccably turned out, whereas Reality wears a pair of two-year-old Adidas trainers and a Toy Story T-shirt.

As far as I’m concerned, it’s rather the job of reality to try and reflect Art.

The purpose of Art is not to mirror reality, but to shape it by the imprints and aspirations that it leaves in the human mind.

Alan Moore, in correspondence with Dave Sim
