"Negative thoughts – when spoken – conjure up negative pictures in the audience's mind. And the more vivid the picture, the more clearly the audience can see it."

Robin Good's curator insight, February 3, 2013 4:49 AM


Mainstream media newsroom chief editors are often looking for exclusive and unique news material for their readers but beyond their network of contacts and traditional content suppliers, they have no easy way to find and purchase, at a low-price, citizen-shot images and footage of relevant events.


"With their mobile phones and cameras at hand, random witnesses often happen to be closer to the action than editorial teams and journalists."


SellNews is an auction platform for news media which allows anyone to make available for a price any image or video clip that may be of interest to mainstream television, newspapers and other media outlets.


Free to use.

Traveler's Delight: Untitled (the movie recommendation) - When business and art intersect ....and so much more | Traveler Delight | Scoop.it

If a tree falls down in the forest, but nobody hears - does it matter? 

Artists have been asking themselves this very question in one way or another for ages. Does it matter to you as a creator what the audience to your creation thinks or does? Whether they notice or care at all? Are you bothered that their understanding of your work is nowhere near your original intent? Can you cope with ignorance masquerading as a deep insight into your inner world? Can you stand the know-it-all pompous experts having a claim on your creative process? The critics telling you what is wrong with your art and how to improve it? Or the industry pundits deciding on a whim whether you have the right to exist or not? Or the collectors who believe that if they bought your piece they actually somehow own a part of you as well?

Donald Clark Plan B: Paleo-porn at the British Museum?

Donald Clark Plan B: Paleo-porn at the British Museum? | Traveler Delight | Scoop.it

"In line with my analysis of cave paintings in terms of the practical function of learning how to spot predators and prey, mobile art seems to have a similar function. Survival in these harsh environments surely too precedence over art in a world full of beasts that you had to kill or would kill you. This, so called art, has a far more practical and prosaic function in this context. Appealing to our 21st century gallery-gawping habits dilutes and diminishes the wonder of these objects."
