Profound Thoughts: Technology versus Talent

Profound Thoughts with Writingbolt…


Technology is that joke people tell you will make you laugh someday.
But, art is a timeless expression of one’s spirit.


Looking back 10-20 years, the “wonders” of the era are ridiculous compared to what we use today.
No matter when a piece of art is crafted, you cannot call it “dated” unless it depicts something “dated.”

So, I say invest your time and money in art, and you too can be timeless. Invest in technology, and you’ll just be replaced in a few years.

    You are right about art being timeless in ways that fads of the present can’t even aspire to. In an art gallery you can hang a Rembrandt next to a Picasso down the hall from a Norman Rockwell and nothing feels out of place. An Eminem poster next to a Tickle-me Elmo… that just isn’t right.

    and then there’s technology that makes art :)) like the cameras, or digital drawing pads… although of course, talent is different… did this post really mean talent, or art?

      Yes, but even that technology may look foolish ten or twenty years from now. I can think back to using the Super Nintendo Mario Paint and how primitive those graphics were in comparison to today’s. Pixels/Resolutions keep shifting, and the tools either evolve to something greater or change formats, leaving the past in their dust.

      Well, art is a talent. And, it may have been the focus of my thoughts in the moment. But, other talents are also rather priceless/timeless. Sure, someone might find a better/sharper way to juggle, but juggling stays fairly consistent with its original form. Joke material may change with the times, but the skills of making people laugh are a mysterious constant.
