“Consumption is the sole end and purpose of all production; and the interest of the producer ought to be attended to, only so far as it may be necessary for promoting that of the consumer.” – Adam Smith
Consume is a strange word. Both it and consumption sound like bad things for some reason. But really, that’s what we create things for…so they will be consumed. Just like a meal is prepared to be consumed, or fuel exists to be consumed, we create art for consumers.
It’s actually a great time to be alive if you create art. Thanks to the internet, we have a whole world that we can show our creations to. Now, as we all know this is easier said than done. How do you make noise in such a large market?
