Aesthetics is for me like ornithology must be for birds.

Justifiably, birds do not care about the debates and findings in ornithology. They just fly about, they tweet and they do many other things. The same applies to artists: if they complied with the demands, or simply the insights, of a particular aesthetic theory, then any form of rebellion in art would be over. Art would conform, would submit to authority. There are no guidelines for making art, but it makes a lot of sense to think about art and to put the respective theories up for discussion.
