Last night I participated in a conceptual art work by Sue Hadju which had me sleeping in a street level window installation for 9 hours aided by two doses of Ambien (coincidently, the word can be phoenetically understood in Vietnamese as "warm beach", ấm biển). This morning I thought of the Pink Floyd song, "Comfortably Numb". As I now approach teaching again this late June at RMIT, I am reminded of the teaching style of some of my best teachers:
It's definitely a process of give and take for both sides. So whenever in doubt, I err on the side of keeping my mouth shut. As a result, I figure that my students spend most of their time in a state of being lost -- but ideally "comfortably lost."
Maeda's Simplicity. Comfortably Lost
