I don't understand how art can be seen as not
connected to humanity. It is created by people.
It is consumed by people. It does not exist
without people.

Now you connect art with the artist's intentions.
I ask again, how can it be not connected to humanity
then? And if support is not as important as the will
of the artist, don't you think the artist acts as a
support himself?

If purpose is more important than result, why bother
creating the art object? Why not instead write an
essay explaining the purpose?
