Omissive Art
a=tF²
by Igor Štromajer

1. Statement:

Omissive Art (Unterlassungskunst) is an active creative process of being passive. The most radical artistic action an artist can do today, is the one he/she does not do. Therefore, my basic mission is not to do art. That is, to do art, by not doing it. The only artistic value of my art is the absence of art. Therefore I call: Make love, not art!

2. Equation:

a=tF²

To find the art, you multiply the time by the square of the force.

3. Related Quotations:

“I don’t want it to be essentially the same – I want it to be exactly the same. Because the more you look at the same exact thing, the more the meaning goes away, and the better and emptier you feel.” Andy Warhol

“I have nothing to say and I’m saying it. The highest purpose is to have no purpose at all.” John Cage

“I have no special message. I wish I did. It would be great if I had one.” Andy Warhol
