“-overall I felt like I didn’t have to do things the way everyone else does them because I found a way to do things that worked for me.”
If anything I feel like the benefit of art has always been to feel comfort and to make you feel less alone- to provide connection to other people. You may have had this experience by yourself, I may have had this experience by myself, but we can watch this together and we can share this catharsis and find renewed connection. That’s really what I hope to achieve.
Art is what we need to make the world valuable. I think the world might exist for the sake of art. I’m going to go with, ‘joy.’
