    Thank you for your reply. As a monoglot I supposed I'm poorly prepared to understand your analogy of different artistic aesthetics being like different languages. :) I guess I'm stuck with my previous biases that if I like a piece of art it must be good, and if I don't like it, for the artists sake I hope someone else does.

    Does anyone want to take a crack at explaining to me why the Kandinsky piece or the Miro piece is considered "good" art? I don't even want to think about that Moaning Lisa.

    This reminds me of an exhibit at the Oban Sea Life centre before it closed. The herring ring. It was a doughnut shaped tank maybe 5 metres in diameter, set so its bottom was at shoulder height. In the bottom of the tank were perspex domes, so you could duck under and stick your head up into one of the domes, under the water.
    The tank had a school of herring in it which perpetually swam round and round the doughnut tank, quite fast, and so were forever swimming quite fast, slightly magnified by the dome at your head, or swimming away, depending on which way you faced. It was quite mesmerising, but important not to think about it as a metaphor for life because that could leave you depressed for days...
