Art Appreciation

As part of an experiment/stunt, international virtuoso Joshua Bell and his nigh $4 million violin spent some time busking with some interesting results.

For many of us, the explosion in technology has perversely limited, not expanded, our exposure to new experiences. Increasingly, we get our news from sources that think as we already do. And with iPods, we hear what we already know; we program our own playlists.

I don’t know if I agree with that entirely, but it’s food for thought.

  1. what’s interesting is how no one else involved with this article appeared to have any idea of the reality of how the experiment would turn out. i predicted the results almost exactly how they turned out before even reading the article. if people had stopped and formed a crowd then i would have been surprised.
