Art Is Not A Product ( neither should it be)

The internet DID NOT made it easy for everyone to become an artist or content creator.

An artist or a content creator is a difficult one to find; and after all those years I am still scarving in the stone of life to find a valuable artist. I have found 'em - of course - before and during the internet era.

Seeing art a simple product, is like reading, say, a treatise of philosophy like a succession of words concatenated, I fear.

It is not because of the internet that we all feel like creators. It is because we are all able to read or to take photographs using a smartphone. Even our most primitive ancestors were able to use a tool. This is human kind.

But being able to read or to take and upload pictures to a hard drive does not gives one the ability to appreciate, nor create, neither understand Art.

To solve this, there is the need of education.  But - alas! - in our delicate days, education is mere a product in itself. And this is really bad, because of only educated people can make a distinction between a piece of art and a piece.

Keep this in mind, you savvy : The fact that you live in a house does not mean that you can design a house.

To Define The Art

It is frustrating how good people are at summarizing what's up with the document in an elevator, but how hard it is to define the art!
