Music and Art: Janet Cardiff

The Forty Part Motet, MoMA, NY

I saw this installation at PS1. At PS1 the room was lined with windows and it was lightly snowing outside. Ann and I walked around the space and you could hear each individual voice from each speaker as you passed which of course melded into one beautiful aural and sculptural experience. Sitting on benches at opposite ends of the gallery, we looked up and discovered we were both demurely sobbing. We then immediately burst out laughing at the absurdity and beauty of crying openly in an art exhibition.

The Decade of Magical Thinking

If there’s been a consistent narrative to this year and every other in this decade, it’s that most of us, Bernanke included, have been so easily bamboozled. The men who played us for suckers, whether at Citigroup or Fannie Mae, at the White House or Ted Haggard’s megachurch, are the real movers and shakers of this century’s history so far.

Frank Rich breaks it down here via NYT.
