Music is the art that comes closest to Dionysian beauty in the sense of intoxication. No one can get really drunk on a novel or a painting, but who can help getting drunk on Beethoven’s Ninth, Bartok’s Sontana for Two Pianos and Percussion, or the Beatles’ White Album?
While re-reading one of my favorite books The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera, I find myself constantly jotting down quotes that I simply love from this novel. This one in particular seemed appropriate to put on my wall.
I made this with a pizza box, coffee and coffee grounds, printed out sheet music from the UP soundtrack, sticks, glitter and some paint for an attempt of a drop shadow.
