High and low art… What nonsense.

Art is art. But there are levels of competence and dedication embedded in every piece of art. And there can be references embedded, as well, only visible to the experienced or patient senses.

How capitalism treats works of art is another matter. It seems that elitism as sales arguments has run amok. And that in itself will rid the masses of understanding of nuances in interaction with art, and may also have a copy-effect on artists – that they will self-censor in order to live up to buyers’ expectations.

Quora Q/A: Engelsk i dansk

– uskik eller farverigt?

I virksomhedssammenhænge kan det give god mening at bruge en udenlandsk leverandør eller markedsleders (ofte) egen-skabte ord og vendinger, hvis man har retten til at videresælge deres produkt eller markedsføre deres system; konsistens på tværs af grænserne gør kommunikationen med både kunder og leverandører/ rettighedshavere /opfindere nemmere.

Quora Q/A: Var det svært at gå fra papir til computer-keyboard og skærm?

paper and pen/pencil/ball pen/ink/chalk/burned matches/coffee/blood – notebooks, notepads, free postcards residing in my jacket inner pocket, post-its, newspaper margins, “ANY piece of paper, please!” or “anyone got a PEN!?”

typewriter, manual – manual press, which took some INSISTING – there was one in particular, a Groma, which only wrote “gold” (still have it, afraid of using it, for fear of jinxing it…), and manual use of correction paper or fluid “paperwhite” to “delete” errors.

Quora Q/A: Hvad er overtro ifølge dig?

– hvis ikke bare et udtryk for uenighed?

Kilde: Kenneth Krabats svar til Hvad er overtro ifølge dig? – Quora

Jeg bruger ikke ordet selv.

Det er et sammenfattende og ofte nedgørende begreb for, at andre mennesker fæstner lid til noget, de mener hjælper dem – i betydningerne assisterer og forklarer verden – uden at kunne føre (videnskabeligt udført) bevis for det.

Jeg oplever begrebet brugt på 2 måder Continue reading “Quora Q/A: Hvad er overtro ifølge dig?”
