Dan Webb's statement for The Visitor
I'm not an artist because of all the contemporary art I saw as a kid — I was inspired by a lot of other things that didn't bother to call themselves art at all. And while I'm not even sure what art is exactly, it seems unlikely that it only exists in certain rooms, in certain buildings, in certain cities. It's everywhere, if you look hard enough.

That means art is free of a permanent address. At best it's just a visitor, showing up in surprising places at surprising times.

What I'm trying to do is just extend an invitation.
