I Found Dalton Ghetti

'Miniature Art on the Tip of Pencil by Dalton Ghetti' -- Odd Stuff Magazine
Artwork is breathtaking. It is absolutely beautiful. They sort of remind me of the number paper clips I featured a while back. My appreciation for this artwork could very well be explained by natural selection. Check out this video in which animator Andrew Park to illustrate Denis Dutton's provocative theory on beauty -- art, music and other beautiful things, far from being simply "in the eye of the beholder," are a core part of human nature with deep evolutionary origins.


Dutton suggests that humans are hard-wired to seek beauty. My dad sent me this video originally, it's really quite interesting. I hope you enjoyed!
