Waler: Just Jesters

Digital mediums and user-generated content have reversed the traditional power balance between artist and audience. The artist used to have the power but now that has been passed to us, the audience.

The internet is like a medieval court with every youtube viewer cast as the all-powerful king and all artists are like the peasant Jesters desperate to please them.

The artists put everything into their performance, desperate for validation but if they are not to our particular tastes or if they misjudge our mood or simply make the slightest mistake then they are instantly shuffled off, never to be heard again, and the king roars "next!" and some other poor fool steps up.
