Let's embark upon a Heideggerian journey on the question of whether art exists? how so? where does it exist? "To enter upon this path is the strength of thought, to continue on it is the feast of thought, assuming that thinking is a craft. Not only is the main step from work to art a circle like the step from art to work, but every separate step that we attempt circles in this circle." (1)


that which dwells near the origin departs.

-Holderlin, "The Journey," verses 18-19
