Sprezzatura: The Art that Conceals Art

Perhaps this has more to do with our Ego’s then anything else, but majority of people try to do this:

“To Practice in all thins a certain spezzatura, so as to conceal all art and make whatever is done or said appear to be without effort”

– Baldassare Castiglione

The Book of the Courtier, 1528

This is about EDITING to make things seem more perfect then they are, aka we’re just displacing the meaning.
