In todays episode we talk about the perversion of art in our society. An idea put forth by Rosenkranz that sums up said perversion is as follows:
“ A corpse is a scandalous phenomenon because it still has a form, although it is in itself formless. Due to the still existing form, it retains the semblance of life, despite being dead. The negation of the beautiful form of an appearance through a non-form originating in physical or moral decay. “
It seems to me, that todays works of art have been hijacked by the world of commerce. Take for example, Jeff Koons “Balloon Dog.” In my opinion this giant smooth, reflective, sculpture acts as a mirror. A distorted reflection that allows, promotes, and rewards the individual to constantly look at and admire themselves in their possessions. It speaks volumes of our narcissistic nature.

Guest
Dr. David Salomon
My career as an educator and author has brought me far and wide--from growing up in the Bronx, NY, to teaching in Spearfish, SD, and Troy, NY, to my current position in Newport News, VA. In addition to my work in the classroom, I have held many administrative positions, and have written and spoken on a variety of subjects from medieval mysticism to faculty evaluation, from Shakespeare to Paul Valéry. I am particularly interested in the ways technology has influenced modern life--in both good and bad ways--in everything from the ways we read, learn, and remember to the ways we engage in reflection and devotional practices. I am a lover of all things Flintstones, am a devotee of "The Odd Couple," "Northern Exposure," and "The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin," and have always been a fan of the hapless and hopeless NY Jets. You can read my blog at "My Two Cents--Not That Anyone Asked."
