  1. We as humans have always been on the move, this is who we are. Always searching, first searching for food to feed us, and then searching to stimulate our intellectual curiosity. Part of our intellectual curiosity was stimluated from art, we saw the world and tried to reproduce it, so that we could better understand it. This was done and from this we have evolved.
