The video “Petra Bachmaier: Art as an Experience” is a presentation of work she and her team has done in the realm of video art and explains the meanings behind their projects and the process. She makes these projects to discover and relate to the world we live in and to show others how to think about the space around them as well. She goes on to say that art has the ability to connect people and can make their experiences interlock, even though their perception of it may be different. This speech has resemblance to writer Neil Gaiman’s speech, “Inspirational Commencement”, where he conveys the message to “make good art”. And not for the sake of making money, doing a job, or for commission, but because it would fulfil you to see something from your creative mind exist.
I appreciated the kind of work Bachmaier has done for the sake of interaction and immersion throughout different communities, attracting mounds of people so that they can experience something together. Similarly, Gaiman makes his point of relating and connecting to people through your art, through their art and the understanding of whatever it may be. Both create art with the general understanding and purpose to link people through it.
