Anything is only as important as you make it to be....and by you ,I mean anyone.....

 

 

I love art and making art......would not want to live in a world without it.

Creativity.....freedom......the beauty of it all.

What is the meaning of a poem for example? Like Robert Frost "The Road Less Travelled"....

 

it means that sometimes it's good to take the lesser travelled route, right?

 

So I get it too, don't I?

 

That could be the meaning, it's all in how an individual interprets it. 

 

And I'm not saying that a person can ONLY see things one way or another- artistically or scientifically minded- but rather that individuals often have a way of thinking that's either one way or another. Sometimes both. I just happen to be a more art-minded person. 

 

To you, art might not be as valuable or important as it is to others.

What do you think is more valuable, art or science? And don't say "both."

 

Science includes technology and we are all using computers right now, as well as knowledge just for it's own sake such as the geological history of Earth.

 

Electricity, computers, cars, trains, engines, metallurgy.....

^Is someone talking shit about you? I don't see it here.....

 

Maybe technology and things are more important for societies, sure.....but that does not mean I love art any less....

It is what I am all about...You are all about something different. that is life....We are not all the same sardines in the same can.

Oh maybe he wasn't, I don't know.

 

I have a suspicious thought process (paranoid - schizophrenia), maybe I interpret things the wrong way. And it's really hard to tell sarcasm over the internet.

To me, art is one of the highest endeavers in which humans can indulge themselves. Each aspect and type reflects the differences that humans observe about ourselvess

 

 and the world around us.  The differences are reflected in the myriad ways in which art manifests and the way each individual receives it. I enjoy most types of artful attempts

 

 at  whatever artists chose to interpret their particular visions. I've seen art in the way a man built river rock chimneys in Florida. They were beautiful and perfectly constructed.

 

 I've seen transitory art in a pile of leaves suddenly dancing perfectly in time in the wind to the music I happened to be listening to. Lasted a mere minute.

 

 There can be art in most everything if ones attention is given to observing such.

 

 It's been proven that doing art and especially music is beneficial to young minds. It is much better than what occupies most of humanity.

 

 

 I find it interesting that the 'money' folks cut art from schools first, when cuts are needed.

Why would she have to choose which one is more valuable?
Your intention is to make a point that science is more important and useful.

What's the most beautiful piece of art in the world? Is it Michaelangelo's David? The Taj Mahal? The Sphinx?
