"The West, with its concepts of time management, profit and efficiency, cannot justify the beading of a dress, the embroidery of a blouse, or the weaving of a carpet unless a machine can do these things in a matter of seconds."

"a package of source material –including exclusive film footage shot by Nick Knight and a selection of possible soundtracks by guest artists- that may be downloaded and edited by SHOWstudio Viewers. Viewers are asked to make an edit from the material provided, lasting up to two minutes. By keeping the source material the same in all cases, the emphasis is place on the individual editor’s approach and authorship. The finished films can then uploaded onto SHOWstudio from mid-January 2006, to be screened in the Viewers’ Cut gallery."

Apocalypse brain (& happy days)
My mind keeps recalling this paragraph I read the other day, unsure of its conclusion:
"Survival in a time of adversity forged our brains into a persistent mould. Professor Seligman says: "Because our brain evolved during a time of ice, flood and famine, we have a catastrophic brain. The way the brain works is looking for what's wrong. The problem is, that worked in the Pleistocene era. It favoured you, but it doesn't work in the modern world."
Elsewhere in the article, someone asks: Has anyone found a causal link between happiness and health?
