Day 130 (November 9th, 2010)
Title: Glass Web
This is my own "comment" of yesterday's post (Shattered). While I was generally upset about seeing the vandalism that was done to the Mint building, when I saw the photos I realized they looked really interesting and cool. I know I can totally hear certain folks (you know who you are!) saying: "See! Sometimes beauty can come from random destruction and violence!". Yeah well, that might be true and I'm sure many works of art came from some sort of conflict (be it an external effect like the vandalism I saw, or an internal one, such as a moral or ethical conflict), but regardless I'm still not happy about it!

I do aknoledge that the 'ends' resulted in an artisistic work for me (and I'm sure many others) to see and enjoy, but I think the 'means' that got us there was seriously misguided.
Oh well... Silver lining and all that I suppose.
