I have no artistic integrity... I have no integrity...

In Art the other day, the tutor brought up something which I thought was really interesting. He said that a lot of people, almost everyone, listens to music for enjoyment. That there is in fact, a lot of emphasis on listening to music for cathartic and emotional reasons. He argued that people rely less on visual stimulation to have the same effect. It is less common for someone to say "oh, I have to see that sculpture again" or to spend as much time admiring the aesthetics of a drawing or painting.

I thought "huh, you know, maybe there is some validity in this statement." I pondered my interaction with visual things - because it's really only been the last couple of years that I've actually realised that I am a visual person - that I gain intense enjoyment from looking at pictures, at studying lines and lighting and colour. But, the important thing, I think, is that I do this primarily through moving art - through film and television, and this is often accompanied by audial stimulation - not to mention superimposed narrative.
