    Yes, art is magical. Studies show that looking at art stimulates, among other things, the motor cortex, the part of your brain that controls your body’s movements. When you look at art you don’t just see it with your eyes or feel it with your brain, you also feel it with your whole body. Quite literally: Every fiber of your being—your senses, your intellect, your emotions, even your physical corpus—responds to works of art. So that right there is pretty much the first magical property of art. It zings through you like a bolt of lightning.

    We’re all limited. Terribly, unavoidably limited. We are limited by the time and place and society we were born into—limited by race and class and gender assumptions, limited by privilege, limited by lack of privilege, limited by things we were taught as children, limited by language, limited by the range of light our human eyeballs can sense, limited by a million things we can do relatively little—if indeed anything—to alter. So, yeah, limited to an almost tragic degree. Each and every one of us, every single day.
