As an artists living in this environment in this moment in time. Carries meaning to our practice and the world that we lived in. The reality that we are encountering and the future of that reality. How its evolving and changing. We are looking for the meaning of our practice in our society. Which society we are in…?

We are in the socialworld of urban society…that’s the reality we are in. As an artists would like also to look at my functionality of our practice in that world. We looked around and saw most art that encountered are descriptive. It amplified, projected, reinforce, existing norms and values. Realizing that most art are old and concern with the past and saw the fundamental of creative act was the act of transformation.

When men found a stick he made a tool, he made a transformation from one thing to another. He changed the language of reality from one thing to another. This act of transformation gave in a interrogatory function in a way.

The role of changing thenorms and values the way we see reality. Never the less, saw that this is the a way
forward in providing a vision of the future. The world that we are in this urbanreality. We began to believe the world that we live in are complex its fluid, itstransient, its relative. In the past the world that we looking at was simple. Today wewould like to called the world that we are living as the world of objects. This led to the idea art in the future in urban culture and the artists as urbanist.
