Cherry-picking culture

Brian Eno on making your own culture:

"As people become increasingly comfortable with drawing their culture from a rich range of sourcesócherry-picking whatever makes sense to themóit becomes more natural to do the same thing with their social, political and other cultural ideas. The sharing of art is a precursor to the sharing of other human experiences, for what is pleasurable in art becomes thinkable in life."
