It is an interesting how these international meetings of powerful nations have grown as a social phenomenon. Are they nearing the end of their natural development.

What should we do now in the United States after the 2016 election?

What is my take-away from the US election? Pretty simple. We need to form a new political party that has a real core of committed members and that is not corrupt like the Democratic and Republican parties. It must draw its power primarily from  a deep commitment to the needs of ordinary citizens. We need to go back to Democracy, you might say.

Seoul’s visual culture

I am fascinated by Seoul’s visual culture. It seems that aspects of commercial art and spontaneous art are frequently combined in harmonious and compelling patterns. Here are a few examples.

 

This strip of concrete above a subway entrance includes a compelling combination of commercial art, graffetti and advant garde art.
