I appreciate the beauty and effective complexity of a sunset. Every sunset is affected by the shapes, sizes, and positions of the cloud, the position of the sun in relation to the earth, and where you are on earth. A sunset is much closer to total randomness than total order--every factor changes sporadically.
I have struggled with that Galanter labels as The Problem of Meaning. Nearly all of my computer-based art is created with an image of the final product in my head. I find it much more difficult to find emotion in something that I have created than it is to create something "forced." Creating something aesthetically pleasing seems easy when the conceptual aspect is mostly ignored.
