When Emotions Emote

  • Emotions follow the same route as what wheels do. They are cyclical. The process is rarely seen within. Emotions can be viewed in various degrees. Emotion is of course problematic if it is unnecessary.
  • The Fear of Seeking Attention. Functional observations for the millennium year have shown that having the dilemma for attention is in one way or the other act of taking rights for oneself. Taking the right to refute the works of the affected; taking the right to see the imperfections of the work (men by nature are fault- finder); taking the rights to development. Finally the most critical, taking the own rights of the affected to have dignity, confidence and a sort of satisfaction for his works – problematic, as one can see his development no more. Catching attention is good only to certain limits not in excessive ones.
  • Artistry. Artists were tagged to be the most sensitive of all the sensitive. They are very perceptible to the feelings of public, in which case, other disciplines unconsciously disregard if not totally felt. As I see it, artistry becomes a mode of expressing emotions. And when, emotion interferes, it tends to supersede the rational foundation of humans. Artist is an end in itself. Humans are all guilty having artistry even in simple ways. What makes professional artists different from others is their capability to transfer their emotions in a dramatic, creative and well-fashioned ways.
  • Emotions are but products of humans being sensitive. It remains to be a good thing, but take the right measures to separate emotions from rationality. Still, rationality makes us the greatest crafts of God.
  • Filipinos embrace the culture of escapism. It is evident in the society through the prevalence of fantaseryes or whatever you want to call it. It is a temporary escape from reality.

Artistry is NOT ONLY an end in itself. It can also be a means to serve the purposes of the artist - having its function in its socio-historical context.
