@joshspilker it’s equally important to make something interesting as it is to make something beautiful

Agree or Disagree?
I like this divide here, the recognition that sometimes people make stuff that just looks good but may not be as interesting. I guess the person that created it thinks it’s interesting, unless they’re just churning out boring mess that they don’t care about as much, though it may be technically proficient, technically amazing in fact. Must be nice to have that type of talent.
But there are plenty of beautiful things that people are interested in, but I do think people’s perspective about what’s interesting and/or beautiful shifts–and does beauty mean awe-inspiring? Does it mean an amazing landscape?
A beautiful story could be about something totally disgusting. And someone’s writing can be horrendous, yet be about a beautiful thing.
Sometimes the most interesting things aren’t that beautiful either.
Okay, this one could go either way, I guess.
