Arts Newsletter

I've just added a news page to my site where people can follow what I'm up to. It's a bit like a blog but not a blog.
I'm going to be exhibiting in Paris next week so this gives a taste of what it will be like.
It goes out each month in the form of a newsletter so if you are interested in receiving a copy just sign up. The option is at the bottom of the page.

The New York Times-Oct 19th 2008

I was very interested to find this article in the New York Times today.

Particularly this section here. I smell conspiracy pooh here. There are a lot of people suggesting that this financial crisis is a part of a bigger strategy and to be honest, it seems hard to have not seen it coming. Yes I did, along with lots of others!

"Since 2004, F.B.I. officials have warned that mortgage fraud posed a looming threat, and the bureau has repeatedly asked the Bush administration for more money to replenish the ranks of agents handling nonterrorism investigations, according to records and interviews. But each year, the requests have been denied, with no new agents approved for financial crimes, as policy makers focused on counterterrorism.

According to previously undisclosed internal F.B.I. data, the cutbacks have been particularly severe in staffing for investigations into white-collar crimes like mortgage fraud, with a loss of 625 agents, or 36 percent of its 2001 levels."

Autumn leaves

It's amazing how the arrival of autumn brings a wonderful fairy tale quality with it. It's a bit of paradise. Everything rests under a golden blanket of leaves and the trees are a mix of green, gold and reds. It's really magical. If you get the chance to take a few minutes on the weekend try to get out into nature and just watch the leaves falling. It's very peaceful. There is a sense of things being put into perspective.

I've recently found a word, 'Memes', to apply to a phenomena that I noticed several years ago. I think that this is a key to answers on how people tick and why they do the things they do. It goes into the worlds of the quantum and out into biology and psychology. Any body out there got thoughts on the matter?
