One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. -Nietzsche

Art by Committee

Imagine art by committee -- it would satisfy all the bullet points agreed upon in the pre-planning meeting, yet would be completely barren and communicate nothing essential or original.

The utility of committees depends upon subdividing tasks so they can be fulfilled independently, so are accomplished faster than a single person performing all the work. No great awareness of the entire project is needed, just skilled labor able to follow directions for their part. Committees work mechanically and achieve mechanical results, never accidentally reaching the creative or thoughtful.

Now consider the solitary artist who must conceive every aspect of his creation under pain of it being flat or stillborn should he overlook a single detail. A complete vision is a prerequisite.

Every great work comes from a single mind.
