Content Saturation & Aesthetics

Content Saturation & Aesthetics

How does modern content saturation alter the current aesthetic?

Something tells me that it does. An unnamed source.

In a world of Super Deluxe, Vice, InfoWars, & CNN ... Wikipedia & WikiLeaks ...

What does an individual artist have to offer?

Are crafted masterpieces even masterpieces anymore?

Especially if re-appropriated into a click bait news cycle? (THIS MOVIE WAS 10 YEARS IN THE MAKING... consumed, then forgotten the next day).

Perhaps there's other ways to see this.

Perhaps the click bait news cycle is only a contemporary phenomenon (in its present form) and the artwork will outlast this news vehicle - if well constructed.

Or that the art marketplace is the same as it was during the time of Shakespeare and Ovid. The only true difference is the technology. But Shakespeare, Ovid, Super Deluxe, Vice, InfoWars, CNN, Wikipedia, & WikiLeaks all represent the same thing - market dominance.

So what does an individual artist have to offer in a world of content saturation?

The only real obvious answer to this seems to be:

whatever's different.
