On the Creativity of Nature through dandyish eyes:

“[The] more we study Art, the less we care for Nature. What Art really reveals to us is Nature’s lack of design, her curious crudities, her extraordinary monotony, her absolutely unfinished condition. Nature has good intentions, of course, but, as Aristotle once said, she cannot carry them out. When I look at a landscape I cannot help but seeing all its defects. It is fortunate for us, however, that Nature is so imperfect, as otherwise we should have no Art at all. Art is our spirited protest, our gallant attempt to teach Nature her proper place. As for the infinite variety of Nature, that is a pure myth. It is not to be found in Nature herself. It resides in the imagination, or fancy, or cultivated blindness of the man who looks at her.” – Oscar Wilde, The Decay Of Lying

Who’s the blind one here?
