The World Isn't All Pleasant.I'm an artist, but all my art is "depressing" and "grim" and apparently brings people down. There is a thing called the MONA museum in my town; half of it has beautiful Egyptian artifacts and gorgeous paintings, the other half is dark, disturbing and confronting art. We went on a school excursion to MONA one day, everyone else spent their time looking at the pretty jewelry and nice portraits. I spent my time looking a list of people's funeral songs, and looking at very cruel and sadistic words carved into a persons shoulder...
These are actual emotions, to me anyway.
They illicit an actual response from the viewer, not just dull, same-y happiness..
