Urry means plenty of different things – but above all else, it indicates an affinity for cartoon creatures and other anthropomorphic animals. Color, in particular, was a traditional strategy for making the imaginary objects placed in the architectural spaces of memory more efficacious.B. Bergmann, Introduction: The Art of Ancient Spectacle,” in Art of Ancient Spectacle, ed. B. Bergmann and C. Kondoleon (Washington, DC, 1999), 26: One common denominator that readily conveys the communicative power of this cognitive process by which something functions and is recognized as a sign of spectacle is color. As Christopher Jones says in his essay on the attire worn by participants in processions, ‘colors construct their own coded world.’ Even the audience in the stands presented a polychromatic spectrum of society, in which clothing distinguished social groups, and spectators could instantly see the key persons in the crowd. In the Forum, a candidate needed simply to wear a bleached white toga to advertise himself as standing for election; hence our modern term candidate, derived from the Latin candidus, meaning ‘white, shining, bright, and open.’” The anonymous author of the Rhetorica ad Herennium, a first-century BCE handbook on rhetoric, described it in this way: We ought, then, to set up images of a kind that can adhere longest in memory. And we shall do so if we establish similitudes as but active imagines agentes; if we assign to them exceptional beauty or singular ugliness; if we ornament some of them as with crowns or purple cloaks, so that the similitude may be more distinct to us if we somehow disfigure them, as by introducing one stained with blood or soiled with mud or smeared with red paint, so that its form is more striking, or by assigning certain comic effects to our images, for that, too, will ensure our remembering them more readily” (Ad Herennium 3.22; translation in Bergmann, Introduction,” 26, from F. A. Yates, The Art of Memory Chicago, 1966). Bergmann and other scholars of Roman art have noted the visual adaptation of this strategy in the color-coding of features in earlier domestic painting programs, including clothing and furnishings.E.g., Bergmann, Introduction,” 26-27: The ‘double-speak’ of spectacle signs that one finds in parodies also occurred in staged executions, when the condemned wore gold and purple, becoming the protagonists in their own public, fatal drama. Before his crucifixion, Jesus was dressed as a divine ruler in a purple mantle and a ‘radiate crown’ of thorns for the mockery of Roman soldiers. Contrived scenarios like these show the power of the sign to spark the memory and trigger certain associations, recalling the passage just quoted about making imagines agentes memorable. As Romans appropriated and ‘recycled’ the customs and images of those whom they conquered, Christians adopted the signs of pagan spectacles to describe the struggles and achievements of their martyrs. The very signs of humiliation became triumphal.” In several ways, then, the rooms were programmed to guide the viewer as if he were walking though the spaces of memory. Particular ideas were attached to mantles in these spaces, especially authority and its transmission, as well as the transmission of memory and character through the teachings of the fathers and the fathers’ gifting of a persuasive related consideration of late antique images of pilgrimage art as memory tools, see G. Frank, Loca Sancta Souvenirs and the Art of Memory,” in Pèlerinages et lieux saints dans l’Antiquité et le Moyen Âge: Mélanges offerts à Pierre Maraval, ed. B. Caseau, J.-C. Cheynet, and V. Déroche (Paris, 2006), 193-201.

Kunz grew up in rural Switzerland. She claimed to have discovered her gifts for healing and telepathy at a young age and practised as a naturopath, researching the restorative energies of minerals and plants. She didn’t study art and it wasn’t until her 40s that she began to draw using a technique called radiesthesia. She would consult a divining pendulum, posing a question – from the personal to the political – and finding the answer within the lines that materialised in stops and starts on the page. The sittings could stretch over 24 hours and the drawings, of which there are more than 400 in total and some 65 at the Serpentine, guided her diagnosis of patients. That brings to to the point of this article. There are artists that do not use their hands to paint their creations. There are those who like to use other body parts to create art. No, I’m not talking about painting on the body, or tattooing, but using parts such as the breasts, buttocks, genitals, feet, eyeballs and tongue to create. Sims, Patterson.

Performing music – whether by singing, playing musical instruments, or dancing – is one of the most complex areas of human engagement in general. One might imagine that emotion in music performance must be based on similar neural processes to those involved in listening, on the grounds that performers listen to themselves. However, there are at least two hypotheses as to how the emotional effects of music performance might differ from those experienced in relation to less active musical behaviors such as listening. On the one hand, it may be assumed that cognitive processes interfere with emotional processes at both preattentive and attentive levels. Thus monitoring and integrating motor-sensory, tactile, kinesthetic, visual and auditory information, attentional and memory processes, etc., might reduce the intensity of emotional experiences. On the other hand, it could be argued, conversely, that similar perceptual and cognitive processes enhance emotional experiences during performance, because performance gestures appear to be partially conveying emotional information as one of their functions. However, to date it appears that investigations of the neural correlates of emotion in music performance are not nearly as advanced as, for example, research on cognitive processes in this domain.

In 1945, before Delaney went to France, while he was still living a dual life as a gay artist in Greenwich Village and a black artist in Harlem, he was the subject of a rapturous profile by Henry Miller, in Miller’s trademark freely associative, subjective and sometimes self-indulgent style. Miller admired Delaney, and to express that admiration he noted how much more difficult it was for a black artist, a product of the Jim Crow South, to take the chances, with color and form, that Delaney was taking. By avoiding cliches, by aspiring to greatness, by challenging white audiences, he would inevitably be neglected, ostracized or forgotten: That makes him just another ‘crazy n–,’ ” Miller wrote, using the racial slur as if it were spoken by a generic white racist and philistine.

But they also were appropriating wholesale the visual material of people who were suffering colonial oppression, taking sacred objects out of context and imputing to them European-derived ideas about their purpose and meaning. It was theft and homage, with all the damage of the theft incurring to those who were often powerless, and the homage paid not to any artist or culture in particular, but generally to an idea of Africa that was invented to serve European needs.

Participant responses indicated that the most frequent music activities used in the home were singing nursery rhymes, finger plays, and children’s songs. In contrast, parents sang or played live music for the purposes of movement the least frequently. Furthermore, the responses revealed that parents used live music significantly less frequently than recorded music. Responses also indicated that in nearly all of the families, mothers were the music activity providers for their children, whereas less than half of the families indicated that fathers were the music providers.
