Art is the Message

Can words convey the message of a piece of art? This is my attempt

A large square room. Total emptiness.

Black walls; black floor; black ceiling.

The room is bright, but no light source is to be seen, as if the air itself is glowing.

I cannot see where one wall starts and the other ends, where the floor or the ceiling end.

Shadowless black.

And a white cross in the middle. I approach it, and stands at its center.

A window opens in the ceiling, straight over my head.

It's a small window

Enough to show me the grayness of the clouds.

Never before did I notice the full rainbow of grays that blend into each other.

Then, a small patch of blue

And a ray of yellow.

The window above my head shuts.

Blackness again.

Blackness without beginning or end.

The light dims.

Too gradual to notice the change.

But I can see my feet no longer.

Nor my hands.
