A much more accurate “now” image for direct comparison would be a photograph. The popularization of abstract art came about as a direct result of the invention of photography, as paintings no longer need to be representative, as photographs are inherently better at that task. Accurately representative paintings were just the photography of the pre-photography era. Portraits of nobility have been replaced by Sears Portrait Studio. Self portraits have been replaced by Instagram selfies. Paintings of historical events have been replaced by photojournalism. Photography is the democratization of art and abstract paintings and sculpture are the most evolved form of art possible. These are not things to complain about.

I had a dream where me and A were backpacking in Japan and ran into Andy McCoy and his wife, driving around in a convertible mostly made out of plywood.

They gave us a lift, but soon after we took a road that was suspiciously grown over by vegetation. It ended up being a dead end with a missing bridge, but he drove over all the same, and we fell for what felt like a hundred meters. We were fine, though, so we thanked them for the lift and parted ways with them.

There was also fishing in shallow shore waters, though for some reason it was done without a rod and using smaller live fish as bait. We were trying to catch sturgeons, though I don’t think small ones eat other fish. Also for some reason my dad was there and was super annoyed with me.

But maybe that was a separate dream.
