On drive home, considering Star Wars dream.
Sci Fi premise potential.
Future where genetic engineering has prevented all mental illness, that defined as such. Of course, higher intelligence etc.
So ... these very smart, very stable humans have art, but there is a sudden interest in earlier music, poetry, stories, etc. before these advances when these mental problems fed art, whether depression, alcoholism, etc. Perhaps these earlier works are contraband. Computers can simulate this stuff, but the interest is in the "genuine" human factor - crazy art by crazy people of the 19th, 20th C.
So underground economy of scientists or mere breeders creating and raising these defective humans for purposes of art for purchase by this wealthy arts crowd. Since illegal / hidden, these humans are raised outside of society, slaves really, and the more defective the better.
