Utopia. Is it more than a dream?

Art enters the world through a void, starting to fill this vacuum with entropy. It's like in science if something is made in a vacuum: anything outside the experiment should not be affecting it at the moment of its origin the make it absolute. To conserve the results we would have to sustain the outcome in absolute zero and in a non-gravity state to avoid any effects to the work. No sunlight or any other energy for that matter should hit that point. It's like trying to stop the world moving round the work it self. Is artists work just utopia? Can it fill the entropia and become real: create ENTROTOPIA?

Dystopia. Is there a solution to overcome it?

Art is not restricted by anything (besides art itself), which allows a form of utopia to create a ´Pataphysical dimension that is self sufficient to be something that can and should be taken seriously. Even though art is a place of illusion and magical thinking, the results are just as real as other ways to see the world through socio-political and scientific explanations. It is also a way to fight back the dystopian image that the world is feeding people in so many levels. How to fight dystopia? Is it enough to show this world has something beyond the everyday life we live in? If something is beautiful, can it truly be true?
