The Shape of Time was interesting in how it displayed everything's interconnectedness. The whole aspect of everything being placed in extension of people around you and all based on circumstance is interesting and deep but at the same time it seems almost sad. That even though it is art and it is a self-expression, it isn't purely one person but everything else surrounding. And yet its reception is based upon the peers that surrounded it. It kind of downplays the magnificence of a virtuoso, but at the same time is shows just how amazing it is that there is someone with that talent at that time. The idea of an invisible chain as events that lead and follow from each action shows how deep the human connection of each person it.
