Pearls Before Breakfast – Joshua Bell Plays A Subway

This is an extremely interesting article about an experiment conducted by the Washington Post. Joshua Bell, a world famous violinist, set up to play in a subway in Washington DC, yet few people noticed. He play an expensive instrument, and played it as well as anybody in the world. Yet nobody stopped to notice – it certainly makes you wonder about the daily hustle of our lives. It also makes you wonder about how much of the value of art is embedded in the presentation, and in the medium of consumption. Fascinating. I think Marshall MaCluhan was on to something:) Enjoy!
