what do you think, does the world become more clear if you cut it into many-many tiny pieces and study them separately?

thats the principle of specialization which is most prominent nowadays. i am not too sure if it helps when taken too far. i’ve met people who can practically “talk” in assembly (microprocessor low level language) and had no clue about life. my conclusion is that if you do study/observe items separately you might loose the big picture. grander scale helps you develop but you might have no focus.
its a rolling gamble and funnily i face the same decision for quite some years very (very) frequently.
there is a tendency now, at least in art.
before there was centralisation, like those anonimous groups of artists working together during the reneussance. then decentralisation came, with romantism and it’s image of a lone and proud artist. but now, isn’t it de-decentralisation happening? artists unions, no one can survive alone so we join our efforts.
so I’ve been thinking about this de-decentralisation in art, globalisation and very very narrow spesialization at the same time. it just gets more and more narrow! how can it happen at the same time?
isn’t it interesting?
sorry, writing a lot:)

it can happen since it looks like we’re forming a gigantic bee-hive. from that respect it makes sense that globalization is the framework of the hive and specialization is practiced by the bees…
