The Arts: Do you think masters or masterworks can ever appear in the modern world and reach the immortality like those of the past?
We have plays that are still being performed -a play "Lysistrata Jones" based on "Lysistrata" from 411bc just finished a run in Jan 2012
We all know who Michelango was and and his "David"
There are many others: Leonardo da Vinci, El Greco, Rembrandt (i'm am biased when it comes to the western world because i do not know much of the Asian arts- Please bring that to the table. i would very much like to expand my knowledge about this)
My question to TED is whether or not you can foresee anything or anyone reaching those levels from and in modern civilization? Is it even possible? What does it take to become immortal?
