What is art for?

Here are some of the possibilities (many of which are very ancient) that I think about:

--- to comfort the dead

--- to awaken the living

--- to delve into the past and run with it into the future

--- to experience others

--- to know the migrations of animals, fish and birds, and of peoples

--- to make community with ideas against injustice

--- to allow the eye to become a hand, a wing, a heart, that can respond to gestures, to colours, and to forms

--- for the joy of making and enhancing life
