Ritual Art as a Road

Creating a ritual art work is a process of movement. The way to its creation starts from point A and ends at point B. How long will it take to walk the path to the ritual art work, and whether we will ever reach it depends on different dimensions. The choice of the direction and the process of thinking is extremely important for its creation (when on our road to a ritual art work, we have reached crossroads and we have to choose a direction). The desire, the will for creativity and the artistic endurance of the ritual artist are also significant.

In other words, the process of creating a ritual art work is a conscious ritual journey. Travelling by itself is a work of art. The created art work aims to change the traveller, the places he/she passes through, the people he/she meets /the observers of the journey/. Thus, changing the micro cosmos /the matter between points A and B/, the ritual artist eventually changes the macro cosmos. This result of the journey is expected, but also a surprise in itself. Because it may be that point B is the beginning of a new path.
