Today I wanted to talk about the same thing in a few different ways. To start off I'll say that whenever I look at an art piece I feel like I'm looking at a window into the soul of the artist. Each person provides a differing and diverse perspective.
We can learn a lot from each other through this exchange.
The idea of “The Brickwall” is essentially when you're talking to someone and there's no way that their mind will ever be changed. Not only that but they'll tell you you're wrong without explaining how you are wrong.
For example I was in a comment section talking to someone about the metaverse and they said “You have no idea what you're talking about.”
Instead of actually telling me what I got wrong, how I could change it, or how their perspective differs from mine, they'll simply say you're wrong and walk away. It's pretty silly to reject something publicly then just run away, right?
I believe that if we really want to get to the bottom of the truth in front of us then we need to be a lot more open to conversation. We can't simply tell someone that they're wrong and walk away. In that same way, whenever someone creates an art piece that you don't like per se, or from a different perspective which you may not share then you should look at that piece twice as much. Take some time with that piece just as you would take some time with new ideas which someone presents to you. Digest, reflect and connect with the idea in any way possible in order to be grateful for this differing perspective. I believe this is incredibly important and I think we need to do this more and more as time goes on.
I think people need to create more writings, more posts and more art to represent how they feel. Later through the expression of words we can then articulate why we feel a certain way. This is how we can overcome "The Brickwall" in order to reach a whole new level of diverse understanding alongside an entirely new level of unity across many differing perspectives.
