Expression, transmission, creation, valuation are watch words in the art world, in relation to time. On a time scale from 0 to infinity (∞), such words also need a vector to imbue them with meaning. Thus, the dynamic that moves from expression to transmission creates social value conveyed by society and developed through education. While the dynamic that moves from creation to valuation, creates economic value conveyed by the market and developed through collecting.  However, this general observation is only valid if there is a catalyst that unites everything: emotions.


It's worth beginning by observing social impacts.


In most cases, artistic expression is timeless. If on the other hand, artistic expression is temporary, often because of the choice of medium, then it is ephemeral and is diverted from its path. Very often, art is the witness of a moment in time that expresses a social reality.
