I have quite a lot to say, so let's go!
Whether AI generated, handmade, performed in a theatre, showcased in a gallery or even kept in a kid's bedroom, the arts are very much important regardless. It's a source of escape from the world, appreciating beauty and expressing your feelings with words or a splash of paint.
Art is a Splash of Hope!
AI enhances already existing artworks. It adds and keeps adding to our, the viewers', satisfaction. It adds that special "out of this world" touch, flawless animations and all. AI helps architects and interior designers creative realistic 3D models or productions. It give life to the lifeless. It accelerates the entire creative procees.
Human made art communicates real life infomation,can be used as a way to express and communicate thoughts and feelings, makes a statement and gives us the aesthetics. It improves our social skills, helps us cope with mental health (anxiety, depression, ADHD, etc.), relieves undue stress and fatigue and acts as therapy for dementia patients and critical thinking and problem solving skills, brain speed and memory.
Music feeds the soul. It improves our total health and wellbeing, brings back memories, it builds our confidence, spotify adds help with patience, music connects and brings people together, encourages teamwork, enhances creativity, brings more skills to the plate, improves listening skills. Music can raise someone's mood, get them excited, or make them calm and relaxed. Music allows us to feel nearly or possibly all emotions that we experience in our lives. The possibilities are endless. Just listening to music can bring about change in your behaviour and/or mood; make you sad, productive, cheer you up, seek love, rethink life choice, take you the the moon and back, give you feelings and take it back or like I say it gets you in your feels.
Drama tells stories and gives you a sense of understanding and belonging. It enhances both verbal and non-verbal expression of ideas, improves listening, visual, observation and interpretation skills. It makes one creative when they get to elaborate words in forms of expression and of course, improvise. It makes us dream and imagine, the life we want, gives us the feelings we lack and makes us think outside the box. It gives us solutions to real life problems.
Now, I see why artists, in all forms of art, are paid in bulk, they are valued, highly influential. They speak for the speechless hence they are greatly valued and treated like royalty. They have the passion and transfer it through different modes; paint brush, singing, gestures, splashes of paint, echo of voices, skipping along the lines of a theatre, etc.
Artists are paid in bulk compared to easily accessible computer graphics.
I'd like to end by saying we all deserve the love being spread by art and artists, it truly is beautiful.
