Is only himself when he does not work, and in his work he feels outside himself. ”37 Having looked at issues faced by visual artists, now let us consider some examples of disputes from another realm of the “creative economy” to see what the properly “alienated” form of creative labor looks like. 39 Countless numbers of talented computer engineers are drawn into the orbit of the video game industry because of the cachet of working in a dynamic and creative field.

Thus a painter’s first responsibility is to the truth of his own vision, even though that vision may (or maybe always does) change as his work proceeds. He may be involved with contractual responsibilities, but not to the same extent as is a designer, whose decisions will be crucially affected by them.
