31 Oct Art is Anything You Can Get Away With.

Banksy is an artist of some acclaim.  Yet this morning on the radio I heard the New York mag art critic dismiss his work completely stating that it’s “so obvious”.  The metallic tones of classism rolled off his tongue like silver dollars sliding into a gilded slot machine.  The truth is, I don’t particularly love Banksy’s work, but to argue...

18 Oct Rumination

I read an article today about a UK study concerning rumination, or self-blame, and its relationship to anxiety and depression.  While I think we all understand that depressed and anxious people tend to ruminate on the problems in their lives, I don't think that we usually consider that this kind of circular thinking might be causative. The study states; "We found that people who...
