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".

The Slug, by Anish Kapoor, is the work that most amazed me at his retrospective currently hosted at the Royal Academy of Arts. A shiny vulva (?) originates a wiggling tube resembling Laocoön's limbs -- an experience that repulsed while attracting the viewer. Laocoön and His Sons is a work that still troubles me a great deal for its theatrical expression of sorrow, while the sensuous red lips seem to hold a dangerous spellbound.
