Can animals exhibit morality?

"Binti Jua, a gorilla residing at Brookfield Zoo in Illinois, had her 15 minutes of fame in 1996 when she came to the aid of a three-year-old boy who had climbed on to the wall of the gorilla enclosure and fallen five metres onto the concrete floor below. Binti Jua lifted the unconscious boy, gently cradled him in her arms, and growled warnings at other gorillas that tried to get close. Then, while her own infant clung to her back, she carried the boy to the zoo staff waiting at an access gate."

That's from a Dazed & Confused editorial right ? What's the story behind the watercolors ?

that's interesting ! perhaps rather anecdotal (as are the countless stories of animals mauling the helpless), but in any event i wonder how the author would define morality -- it's somewhat hinted at, a form of altruism that may or may not be a conscious endeavour, but not in any concrete manner. which may be begging the question ...

but does it make sense to draw anthropomorphic comparisons as we edge toward WWIII :-p

Its a series of sketches Gary Card did for the ipad version of Dazed & Confused. Here are the originals (published in Decoy).

"A couple of years ago I designed costumes for an experimental editorial for Dazed and Confused with Anthony Maule and Robbie Spencer, making our models into strange amorphic, distorted creatures by over padding and layering clothing with my bizarre latex costume pieces. I was delighted when dazed then asked me to re-interpret the shoot by illustrating the shoot for the i-pad edition of the magazine."

From 1976 to 1989 Ulay worked together with Marina Abramović.
In 1988, Ulay and Abramović decided to make a spiritual journey which would end their relationship. Each of them walked the Great Wall of China, starting from the two opposite ends and meeting in the middle. Ulay started from the Gobi Desert and Abramović from the Yellow Sea. After each of them walked 2500 km, they met in the middle and said "good-bye".
At Abramović's 2010 MoMa retrospective, she performed ‘The Artist Is Present’, sharing a period of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay made a surprise appearance on opening night. It seems that Abramović experienced a strong emotional reaction upon seeing Ulay's arrival, reaching to him across the table between them.

That Jay Z "Picasso Baby" fiasco is one of the most entertaining travesties to be perpetrated on the public in a long time. Hilarious and sad at the same time.
The artistic part is that a multimillionaire managed to get people to embarrass themselves in front of dozens of people in person - and millions via the Internet - all for the profit of said multimillionaire. It really makes you think about capitalism, etc. Jay Z has always been an "artist"; that he has an abiding contempt for the majority of his audience is intrinsic to his work.

Reminds me of this video in a way.

i don't see how anyone could have even the slightest acquaintance with the hyper-inflationary circus that is the international art world as represented by pace gallery and not be forced to 'really think about capitalism'. you don't need jay-z for that. which is perhaps the point?

makes me think of this review of magna carta:
"Eight summers ago, Jay-Z described his impossible journey from no-name to brand name in eight sly words: “I’m not a businessman/I’m a business, man.”

A triumphant little zinger, no doubt. But what about the rest of us? When an artist self-identifies as a corporate entity, are we still Jay-Z fans? Or are we Jay-Z customers?

Here’s how it worked: Samsung purchased a million copies of “Magna Carta” in advance, then, via the app, made the album available to subscribers five days before its widespread release. In exchange, users were asked to share access to their social media accounts, their phone calls, their GPS location and more. If the medium is the message, we finally had an answer to that fan-or-customer question.

And now who would want to be either? Throughout “Magna Carta,” the 43-year-old pretends he’s a threat to a system he’s so eagerly become a part of, as if his life as a champion capitalist is some perpetually escalating act of subversion. Hooray? Rooting for this man in 2013 is like rooting for Pfizer. Or PepsiCo. Or PRISM."

rest available here: http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2013-07-08/entertainment/40440751_1_magna-carta-holy-grail-jay-z-fans

there are some issues with the review, like the fact that your information is being collected anytime you buy something online, whether you sign up or not, samsung/jay-z aren't doing anything unusual there, i suppose. but i still mostly agree with the sentiment.

i don't understand, what's wrong with that (aside from the music being garbage, which is personal opinion)
post #1274 of 1303
seems disingenuous to act like you're this outsider challenging the system when you're firmly entrenched in the system, no? i get that he's always rapped about the same stuff. but once upon a time he could rap about being some kind of rebel and mean it. now when he says it you can't really take it seriously.

this all assumes that authenticity and credibility or whatever matter. if it's not something important to a listener--they just want something they think sounds good--then that stuff isn't a problem. but keep in mind that jay-z didn't become popular as some hollow pop star. i could be wrong about that since i was never really into jay-z anyway. just the impression i had
post #1275 of 1303
yeah his early stuff was rather hardcore, and though i didn't care for his messages, it displayed some skill.

what i didn't get wasn't the lack of authenticity or what have you but how that related to corporations ? is pepsi or pfizer lacking in authenticity , what does that even mean puzzled.gif
