The painter, Max Beckmann, once stated that movies had destroyed peoples' vison. But I think the real issue is that vision is conditioned by the prevalent media, which is rather McLuhanesque, but true. How artists and media craftspeople are going to deal with that issue as we move into the "flat screen era" is a thorny subject. 
 
A generation that has grown up on mp3's played on an iPod is likely to have little appreciation for the velvety acoustic presence of a live orchestra space even if it's Prince singing a capella rather than the Philadelphia Orchestra.

	My point was, they don't even want to see in 3D. It's an experience of no interest to the younger
	generation. Their interest are convenience and instant/random access.
