Things That Last
In our society today, it seems everything can be disposed of without a second thought. If you look around our cities and homes, so much could be easily thrown away and likely would not be worth reparing. In a way, this is what presentational art is. One of the Transformers movies or one of Macklemore’s hit songs could easily be lost in the next few years and the world would not change much, but if Homer’s works were lost, the trajectory of some people’s lives might change, because those works have continued to be extraordinarily influential throughout the years.
