A few weeks ago, Taylor Swift posted an open letter to Apple regarding their failure to pay artists during a 3 month free trial of Apple Music. Although Taylor eventually won her case, it prompted me to think about the art that we create, the different forms in which it is recognised, the way we access it, our means of consuming it, the purpose and the impact of its reverberations.
Humans are conditioned to focus on the future, to look forward, to always keep moving. At primary school, we are prepared for secondary school, college and university. Then our careers, marriage, children. Even death. Our lives are all about envisioning a future but how present are we right now? This is our life, this moment, this second, this breath.
