The Permanence of Art in the Digital Age

Imagine a world with no art. Billboards hold words with no color. Children’s books are just gray pages of mush that kids chew into soluble pieces only to spit up the excess. Movies don’t exist. Neither do any form of theatre or dance. Clothes are uniform. Walls are dim with the blankness of an unstretched canvas. The world is muted. Life is feeble.
