Aesthetics versus Humanities in Art
thoughts from Japan
I play some games that people spent years on in a few minutes and feel I am done with it, or have experienced it before.
While consuming art, I’d skim through products at lightning speed, not impressed by any because I experienced the aesthetic before, craving for something new.
When an artist creates something there are two directions, which can be combined: to further aesthetics and to further humanities. Humanities contains knowledge that can educate. Aesthetics has a method of transmitting knowledge that can provide a better means to educate.
