“The word “art” is something the West has never understood. Art is supposed to be a part of a community. Like, scholars are supposed to be a part of a community… Art is to decorate people’s houses, their skin, their clothes, to make them expand their minds, and it’s supposed to be right in the community, where they can have it when they want it… It’s supposed to be as essential as a grocery store… that’s the only way art can function naturally.”

#Latergram from the studio today. I’m trying really, really hard to stay above the anxiety, stress, and general freaking out that the professors here are creating. Yes, I know I have a shit ton of things to accomplish in the next two weeks. Yes, my ambitions may perhaps be a bit quixotic. But you know what? I have already been working hard & I will continue to bust my ass. Your doubt is my motivation. My unglazed work has been described as deceptive—in weight and complexity. I love that. I’ve finally figured out where the spend the time and how to put my heart & soul into my work. I might not be the most productive, but I’ll take the most clutch. I am unflappable; unstoppable when I’m on a roll & in my zone; and when all’s said and done, I bet you’ll be both surprised and impressed—the ultimate deception. Two weeks to exhibition. The pressure’s on. It’s game time. Beast mode or bust. 🔥

In a simple experiment, researchers at the University of Chicago sought to find out whether a rat would release a fellow rat from an unpleasantly restrictive cage if it could. The answer was yes.
The free rat, occasionally hearing distress calls from its compatriot, learned to open the cage and did so with greater efficiency over time. It would release the other animal even if there wasn’t the payoff of a reunion with it. Astonishingly, if given access to a small hoard of chocolate chips, the free rat would usually save at least one treat for the captive — which is a lot to expect of a rat.
The researchers came to the unavoidable conclusion that what they were seeing was empathy — and apparently selfless behavior driven by that mental state.

OH MY.

this just in: rats are more humane than humans
