what is the purpose of art . . .

On the purpose of art: “Why do we create? What is art for exactly? I don’t always know the answer to that but…I guess the answer is that, in the moment of experiencing art, you’re not alone…You’re connected to another human being, often in a way that transcends description…I believe we would be diminished if we didn’t have that particular form of human connection…I want in that moment, for that person to feel like I gave them everything that I have. I feel like I owe them that. I feel like we owe each other that.”
         - Steven Soderbergh, director.
