Nor do I...however I often respect the first attempts in any new medium, 
regardless of how they stack up against the entire history. Inventing the forms 
and structures are necessary before the critical and comparative process can 
begin. And I did find an experience from Earth that I found meaningful - 
viewing the abstract Mt Everest with knowledge of live data feed filled me with 
an emotion resembling loss, a desire for something I would never acheive, and 
which I did not know I desired.  It is simple, but an excellent start.

Much like
