Can beautiful art destroy us?
This was very thought provoking! I made my roommate watch (he's an art major) and we had a very long conversation about this. He is of the belief that there is nothing wrong with fulfilling the natural human desire for aesthetics that are pleasurable to the senses. I don't think art is capable of destroying us... the Stendhal Syndrome is fascinating but I think that the pursuit of art creates much much more than it destroys. Anyone else have any thoughts?

I've never heard of the Stendhal Syndrome! Didn't know something like that was possible

as a painter may I say: Art is nature by man.
