Thought of the Day

I don't believe in morality, but I believe in ethical conduct as set out by His Holiness the Dalai Lama: "Ethical conduct = a way of behaving that respects others’ right to be happy".

"a voluptuous panic upon an otherwise lucid mind"*

i was reading that london with its many galleries is second only to NYC in matters of contemporary art. this is why i have been contemplating many times the option of studying history of art (modern option) while here. lately i found a highly regarded institute where my colleague's wife is professor: the courtauld institute of art. this post is not about my study perspective though but a brief article to present the new artwork at the tate modern gallery: an installation of slides which are both impressive interactive sculptures (visitors can slide on them!) and a potential alternative mean of transport, according to carsten höller.
i went to the tate last w/e but it was so packed that i did not enjoyed it and ended up spending most of my time at the shop where i purchased a beautifully painted children booklet and a cheecky tale of charlie and lola. next time i will be thrilled of sliding like a child!
* roger caillois UPDATE: all the courses I was interested in are not offered on a part-time basis. Sigh. My last attempt is to see if i can find a course in art curator at the royal college of art or goldsmith.
