I don't just mean good art, or even great art. I mean art that I'll look at and think: I didn't know you were even allowed to do that. Or better, art that'll leave me incapable of thought.
Examples, for me, include work like David Lynch's Eraserhead, which gripped me and didn't let go for the full ninety minutes; Venetian Snares' album Rossz Csillag Alatt Született, with its fusion of classical, jazz, and electronica; James Joyce's Finnegans Wake, which... yeah; and, recently, the architectural work and manifestos of Friedensreich Hundertwasser, who goes at making buildings in a completely different way from most everybody else.
I don't care what art form. I have no biases. Sculpture, dance, photography, whatever. I just want things that will somewhat overload me.
