“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

One of My Barcelona Lectures (video)

Thanks Jaron and all the amazing people who showed up. 200 I think! 150 in the room and 50 in the corridor! It was fantastic.

Thanks for this!
I'm an art student in the UK, and wondered how those experiences when you get a chunk of knowledge that comes completely formed, correct, direct from 'objects' in nature, living and non living, fit, if at all, within ooo? Or are they still too 'out there' to be considered by formal academia?
I think a lot of people have those experiences, but don't express them for fear of being laughed at.

Tim, you managed to articulate why I love the pre-raphaelites so much (besides the art being omnipresent, growing up in Liverpool) - thanks!
