The work of Hilma af Klint. What drives someone to first see, second create, and third be willing to share despite having zero external indicators that their work has any place in the world?

“To be able to actually have the vision of what is real meet up in a place where everybody can acknowledge it - It’s asynchronous. Time does not actually have the final say.” Pretty much anything that surrounds you that you can say this is real or this is valued is a generalization.
