"the rock represents the artist's stoicism - in a world where so much is transient and changing, the artist communicates how he and his artistic commitment remain immutable. In a sense, the piece is incredibly reassuring to the onlooker - though so much in life is ephemeral and lacking in permanence, the artist reassures us that the desire to create beauty for beauty's sake remains unchanging, almost 'like a rock'. The spotlight only serves to emphasise the singularity and importance of the statement this single pebble is making."

A teacher would never say anything like that unless someone else said so. This is the student trying to figure it out, only to later get **** from the teacher because someone said the spotlight works as a focusing tool creating a focus point on the bright side, leaving the dark side to be overlooked, this symbolises the importance of perspective, as it lies in the human nature to make hasty judgements on superficial information, which may be only a small piece of a greater truth. You see, despite the student's free enterpretation following a perfectly understandable reasoning and the fact that it is a very emotional and personal enterpretation it is not what is the most common thoughts and therefore it is wrong (this is how my teacher worked, not only with me but with my entire freaking class and it was impossible for him to see things from a different perspective but he wasn't the one who corrected my exam so I got a good result ).

''No, no, I believe you are wrong. The true motive of this piece is to show us how we overlook the complex details of all the simple things in our lives. A simple rock holds more detail than what we could ever hope to fathom, and by showing us this, the rock has become something greater than any of us could ever understand. The artist clearly knows this and has proceeded to act accordingly and create art from an otherwise overlooked object.''

Of course whilst listening to side-stream musical genres on our grammophone players, to a quality that cannot possibly be mimicked by digital equivalents. I suggest We do it at the non-corporate café that is accessible only by climbing a mountain, where we'll disucss how the politicians are ignoring the needs of artists, as well as how we can make our society a non-monetarily based one.
