Art has no boundaries except those imposed by the needs of the maker. Boundaries are a form of definition, nothing more. They are a way to create a hierarchy of concerns, interests and priorities. Boundaries change all the time. That is part of what art does. By defining an area of interest or by stating a new priority, art allows us to create new definitions of ourselves and the context in which we operate. To blur a boundary is to confuse the definition. To move a boundary is to make a new definition. Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School

P. 28 in the HANDBOOK too! Let’s talk about inspiration.
