Used as a function word to indicate that a following noun or noun equivalent
is definite or has been previously specified by context or by circumstance.

The way in which something is placed in relation to its surroundings,
the relative position or combination of circumstances at a certain moment,
having to do with the theory or practical activity of constructing situations.

Of, relating to, or characteristic of the present or the immediate past,
a trend of thought that affirms the power of human beings to create, improve and reshape their environment, with the aid of scientific knowledge, technology or practical experimentation ... encouraging the re-examination of every aspect of existence, from commerce to philosophy, with the goal of finding that which is 'holding back' progress, and replacing it with new, progressive and therefore better, ways of reaching the same end... rebelling against academic and historicist traditions, believing the "traditional" forms of art, architecture, literature, religious faith, social organisation and daily life are outdated...therefore requiring direct confrontation of the present economic, social and political conditions of a collapsing industrialised world.

the ARTs
The word ART has become amputated from its meaning, and society no longer respects its breadth of inclusion. Commercial and bureaucratic controlled society has separated and segregated the ARTs into "product categories" and hierarchies, for ease of sale, distribution, and the status of its controllers.

For ART to exist it needs a creator, a medium and an experiencor. But ART, as a word, is no longer valid. We therefore choose to express these components collectively as “The Components of Art

We define “The Components of Art” (TCA) to mean:
"the human conscious, production or arrangement of sounds, colours, forms, movement or other elements in a manner that affects a sense, thought or emotion experienced in a situation (contrived or otherwise)."

the-situation MODERN, the dialectical unification of art and life.
the-situation MODERN recognises TCA in all truthful forms.
the-situation MODERN
creates situations where mediums are created, arranged, realised, displayed, experienced and recognised.
the-situation MODERN provides TCA with a situation to exist within.
the-situation MODERN
will contrive situations wherever there is a recognised need (and in some cases where there is not).
the-situation MODERN
rejects apathy, lies and homogeny of life experience.
the-situation MODERN
rejects vicarious experiences, only individual life experiences are material to the individual.

the-situation MODERN
, although founded in London, (Corporate) UK, does not recognise political, social, linguistic, cultural, genetic or other such inhibitors to TCA.
