Thanks Chuck.

A widely held opinion in the aesthetic community insists that an artist is more credible if he doesn’t consider his audience during the creative process; the philosophy suggests that a true artist has to make his art for personal reasons, regardless of whether or not people like it (or even want it)… Art is not intrinsic to the universe; art is a human construction.  If you killed off all the world’s people, you would kill off all the art.  The only thing important about art is how it affects people.  It only needs to affect one person to be interesting, but it has to affect many people to be important.
