Evolution is a part of life and existence. It seems nature does not evolve unless there is a need. Consider the shark. It has been around for 250 million years and unchanged for most of that time. But sadly, other material things continually evolve even if we would have them stay as is.
I did an art show two weeks ago in Ocean City. The visible evidence of unwanted evolution was everywhere. Sixteen years ago doing this show made you a part of 250 or more vendors in two huge display areas broken down into ‘crafts’ and ‘fine art’. The current show had less than 75 total vendors with arts and crafts mixed together. The interest in art seems to be shrinking. It is hard to understand why it happens. Complacency? The economy? It would be impossible to pinpoint why interests peak and fade. Still it is sad to watch the world push art aside so technology may flourish. Can’t we co-exist?
