Architectural commissions that once might have seemed benign look more and more like matters of conscience. We know, for instance, that greenfield development destroys wildlife habitats even as species extinctions are occurring at a catastrophic rate. We know that projects in the United Arab Emirates are being built with slave labor. We know that luxury […]

"The paradox in Canadian music is that we have so many superstars and very few developmental channels to build future superstars. We cannot expect to continue to have globally relevant Canadian pop stars without examining (or creating) the mechanisms needed to sustain pop chart ascension."

Confabulation does seem to be innate: consider the stuff that people imagine they've done when they have brain damage, and that children come up with while the prefrontal cortex is developing.

Today, our most famous purveyors of ideas sell themselves to the wealthy much like the courtiers of the Middle Ages. Daniel Drezner notes that these ideas are therefore shaped by the “aversion” that plutocrats share toward addressing the problems we face. Inequality? Global warming? Populist nihilism?

"The sounds frequently referred to as elevator music are, at least officially, no more; over five years ago the company folded in a deal with its new owner, Mood Music. Muzak often amounted to the sonic equivalent of a Pan-Am smile, inspiring the listener to a bland, blinkered contentedness. In part, its reputation has obscured […]

Schneider plans to turn the site into a place of shelter according to a cryptic press statement. Omonia Square will become a neutral zone hidden from attackers and the watchful eye of Google maps alike as part of the Onassis Cultural Centre's Fast Forward Festival 4. The concept of camouflage will be key...

According to Ashley Bickerton, Ornamental Hysteria, the title of his new exhibition at Damien Hirsts Newport St Gallery, means absolutely nothing. And agreeing on a name for the show was by far the hardest thing in what he describes as his and Hirsts lengthy and deep collaboration over the show. We went back and forth a million times; I wanted it to be called Bastard Tongues after my Dads book [Bickertons father is the eminent linguist Derek Bickerton] but Damien said he wasn't having Bastard...

His comments come after the Historical Heritage and Fine Arts Board in...
