Is your museum a commons or a zoo? (Still Water blog)

"In the market paradigm found in museum gift shops and universities dining halls, common spaces are often designed to attract visitors to spend money. In the zoo paradigm, as exemplified by Facebook, exhibiting private behaviors in public is the engine for a hidden economy.

I've been trying to push myself with new textures and colors. I love the way the meat has a sort of iridescence that dances across its surface like the dusk-red sun atop the stippled sea."
