Plato did not consider art useful. You can’t smoke the image of a pipe, or sleep in the image of a bed. The ‘real’ bed is the form that exists timelessly. The bed you sleep on is a copy or example of the real bed. A painted bed is even farther from the truth than the real bed - and in Plato’s view is dangerous because of that distance.
Rene Magritte’s ‘Betrayal of Images’ speaks to Plato’s argument. Below the image, Magritte has written ‘This is not a pipe’, as if to remind viewers that what is painted is not the real thing - that a space separates art and reality. Laurie Schneider Adams

Smoke Art

"Jim Dingilian has an amazing technique for creating art out of old bottles. He fills them with smoke and then scrapes away the coating left inside the glass by the smoke.”

Wow.
