The process of creating art is similar with the process of creating a place of shelter. But when as an artist you want to explore something new, you have to descend into a state of mind which is unsafe and you have to get away from the familiar and constructed structures of your personality.
Art for me is the act of leaving the shelter and going out to find something new, to step into the realms of the unknown. Therefore art is, as much for the artist as for the spectator, unsafe but exciting.
