We are now capable of putting all the art in GB or TB and create things they dont even exist, but we still can call them art. May be we need to discover which is the new art in the person of today.

There isn't, I believe, anything more meaningful that we do, than arts. In our lives there are a lot of things - money, jobs, relations, parties - but the only thing that we do and stays behind for generations is art. Even of you are not really good at it, it remains.
But the world today is like not really into arts. Very few can live from it, even fewer believe that it is valuable enough to give money for it. It is despicable how the society changes its priorities - just some 400 years ago many knew that the most important characteristics of man kind is the spirit. Or maybe is a statistical thing - many now and then are different things . I don't know
The thing is that today seems like fewer and fewer are interested in a good book or movie, or play, or exhibition. In society, where zombies are now third generation, after inventing the TV, the tastes of people are easily defined in a effective and quick way. You just do something big enough and in no time it becomes mass product (product!)
In order to see the both sides of the coin, I would like to take a second and think about the last good pieces of art seen.
The first thing that pops in my head is that animation I watches yesterday - about a box of sugar and the huge problems that it creates in the world of insects. It was all speechless animation reasoning on the society, the differences, the war, the self sacrifice and friendship. It was beautiful and not with a single word in it.
Other great thing I remember seeing lately is a play, based on the legendary series Allo Allo (an old English comedy). It was recreated in a smart, funny and modern way. It represents the World War II from the angle of a restaurant keeper in a very small village in France during the German occupation. In the play was represented a moment where every parties (the Germans, the French resistance, the main character and some others) were very interested in getting a very valuable picture that was to be taken from Hitler himself. And what better way to do it, but by dressing (all separately) like Hitler? It was a feast of humor. In places was so funny, that the actors themselves were giggling, incapable of stopping.
I can go on counting. And still, I am sure that not many people will understand my excitement. In the end, what I can not say for sure is: Is our art dying or is the society just not interested enough (after all, you can't buy anything with art)?
