It seems that we live in a data-driven world, where heart and thumb icons express the appreciation of art, cats, and what we had for dinner, and images that artists and photographers have often taken many hours to create are not appreciated as they used to. They aren’t printed and placed ‘pride of place’ over the proverbial mantlepiece like they used to be. And this is a real shame, because a ‘like’ on an image lasts for a split second, then it’s moved down your newsfeed and possibly lost forever, whereas a print of the same image will be there every time you glance at the wall it hangs on.
Food for thought? I think so.
