I was very interested by the different pieces of work we were shown. Each piece had an artistic flair that was increasingly interesting. I was also very interested in the his ideas of finding a meaning in life by using a artistic output as a way of finding ones self. I have thought deeply about those subject in my life just because I do not believe in a higher power. Finding meaning through art is something I would like to look into deeply to see how that could effect my future life.
