Art is valued based on the economic and salacious whims of bodies of power and wealth owners of the world. It permeates your home, clothing and belief systems, exists between spaces both real and imaginary, fictitious and everyday. It removes you from your own senses and can stimulate the adoption of new schema. It is funny, essential, and appears at first glance to be bewilderingly unnecessary for day to day life.
