<STATEMENT>
Philosopher Wittgenstein said as below;
Pictures and languages are two form in which an infinite meaning can be given to us.
Pictures have a meaning and tell something.
However, everything cannot be told with limiting the meaning of pictures.
That is because "narration" and a "meaning" of pictures exist in another dimension, and "thinking" which pictures tell does not exist in logic space.
Although pictures have a meaning, we cannot think of it.
I will replace "pictures" here with contemporary art.
It is said that contemporary art is the world nondescribable in language.
However, contemporary artist knows that it can be discovered by the pursuit of consciousness.
Then he remakes the discovered consciousness for a myth, in order to make it transposed to suitable language, and it releases to this world.
