Put a frog in boiling water it will leap out, of course.
Put a frog in cold water and slowly raise the temperature, the frog does not notice.
We as the human race are being slowly boiled.
Wake up before it is too late, feel the rising water temperature.
“All art is quite useless” said Oscar Wilde.
Art could be music, poems, written word, spoken word, paintings, sculptures, pictures and many other things we create.
Is it of use?
It’s not practical or useful and seemingly non-essential like say a knife or a fridge or a computer.
So why do art? Does it have to be useful?
Many things that matter in life are non-essential, the magic of life is neither functional or logical. It is often something we can not put into words.
Art can visually explain something we can not verbalise.
Art is a narrative of the human story, it binds our culture and reflects it.
Art is love. That’s why humans choose to create it.
Art has no use but life without it would be useless.
