I think this bears repeating as it points out that the choice of name is descriptive of one’s intentions towards the output. As a Craftsperson (studio Potter) who makes a living producing objects some people call art and some people call vessels, I’m constantly in the midst of personal struggles over expression and profit. Some days I’m concerned that I’m filling the world with objects that no one wants and the next that I’m selling out by giving them what they love. Artists can spend a lot of time feeling guilty for making money doing what they love and can also spend as much time hating the world for ignoring what they are passionate about. Being your own publicist only makes the situation more complicated.
I inclined to be someone who makes art and someone who makes products but not “content.” When I publicize my work it shouldn’t be for the likes or the shares (I’ll admit it sometimes is) but for the relationships with the people it reaches and their financial support that allows me to continue to do what I like and (I hope) am good at,
I love topics like this.
