And the noble, seminal switch is a stuttering candle.

Is postmodernism dead?
Postmodernism has lost its value in part because it has oversaturated the art market.
Theodor Adorno, "Good art is reduced to memento mori in museums".
Is this the way the art world ends? Why ideas that spawn other artworks are called seminal if they are made from nothing ?
"Vanitas vanitatum omnia vanitas"
The skeletal figure of Death is important in the medieval danse macabre. Because a good artist is a dead artist, haunted art galleries are places where everyone there should be dead. In other words, the dead don’t bury themselves. But clearly they don’t excavate themselves either.
If you want something, work for it. Life is to short to wish for things. Your art may be perfect, but if it did not ship, it might as well not exist.
