Art: An Aside

While reading through the linked articles for my 'Games are not art' article, I came across one of the most profoundly moving pieces of writing I've read in a while. I can only highly recommend 'Pearls Before Breakfast' and ask that you read it too.

Wow. What an amazing article!

I'd like to say I'm surprised, or that I'd have stopped and listened. But I doubt it.

Like the author I think that Kant has a point, the context is very important in appreciating art. But with the obvious technical skill of the musician the number of people that stopped is absolutely shocking. I wonder what else we may be missing in the daze of the morning commute?

Thanks for the link :)
