Intuition beats Statistics: Interview with artist Bernard Pras

Dirk Dobiéy Interview 0 Comments

‘I think that intuition, our subconsciousness, if we arrive to put it out to meet others, can be as efficient or more efficient than traditional survey techniques, or mathematical approaches. I think that mathematics are not the only way to read the world and tie people together. We are in a society that takes too much the zero and one into account. I believe that we have a power in us that does not need to envy mathematical methods. All human activities have lot of connections in commons. It is no coincidence that many CEO’s have an interest in contemporary arts, because there are common values, common anxieties, common hopes. Of course I am convinced of it. In human activities, there is not a specificity through the art activity rather than the industrial activity or whatever. There are always the same resources, the same questions. In fact, the goal is to communicate, to claim your existence, to try to find a way to share it to feel better, to reassure, to be less alone, to be loved… These are the human motives!’
