Dialogue or Fight

What I love about Banksy is how his art always shows the push-pull. There are no winners and no losers; ideas are in conversation. War and innocence. Privacy and surveillance. Beauty and anger.

Food and pets.

This is probably one of the coolest art installations ever. On a personal level, I'm trying not to eat meat more than once or twice a week. It's about being green, reducing carbon emissions, resisting a heart attack, eating more vegetables, grains and beans, urban homesteading, knowing what's in my food, saving money, and a bunch of other ideas that have been floating around in my brain.

Now it's also about not eating pets.



  1. I've thought about being vegan sometimes... I'm waiting for laboratory-grown meat, just the meat :)

  2. Oh wow! Thanks so much for posting this link. I've always been really intrigued by Bansky's work- and I wish I could see this one in person!

    ps- I totally agree about Feith's quality in the GO international line. The cut is also really good on all the pieces- they don't sag or gap in weird places.

  3. ps- thanks so much for the walking-to-work tips! I wore my slummy choacos to walk in and switched to my favorite pair of platforms once I was at the office ;)
