Comment on Accidents by Art Kunstler

I think the room where ARTists go can be better characterized as a labyrinth of many halls, doors and rooms. The accidents you refer to are indeed gifts. However, good accidents are more likely in the "rooms" that have been arrived at by exploring many dead ends, further rooms, and hidden doors. That is the difference between the new and old, although a rookie may stumble into a great room or an old pro may go to a great room ( Toronto ) and realise that there are only good photos there.  The work is in exploring rooms as well as the work once the image is found. But as the sportscaster Howard Cosel used to say " Luck is the residue of hard work"
