Transference of beauty

“Beautiful things want to be replicated. That’s what beautiful things are. You see a beautiful person, you want to draw that person. Someone sees your drawing, they want to make a painting. Someone sees that painting, they want to take a picture of that painting. Someone sees your picture and they want to go for a walk in nature. So it’s this endless chain of people being excited by this beautiful thing that came before them.”
– Jonathan Safran Foer via Studio 360 interview

      I agree! And a really lovely way of thinking about how the things you admire and recognize can contribute to others’ lives.
