|A studious White Bear|
Listening to the White Bear explain how she had escaped from inside the head in which she had been trapped by Dostoyevsky’s thought-experiment; and how she was now travelling around the world to “examine the ideas and consequences of the dichotomy [between] inner beast and shallow surface, and [to] investigate the profound impact [that] the idea of a true inside and a merely representative exterior has on all kinds of fields”, I found any lingering prejudices melting away.

A planned encounter
It turned out that I would soon have a chance to do so: discovering that part of the White Bear’s project involved conducting video interviews which would later appear on her website, I volunteered my services, as you’d expect. And so it was I spent a pleasantly sunny July afternoon in front of a video camera at the centre of the White Bear’s installation in the CCA. The White Bear uploaded the results of her endeavours today, and edited highlights of the interview can be found in the video below:

What can I say after that? Well, I can thank the White Bear for putting me in the spotlight of her own project, naturally enough. More than that, I really must thank her for reminding me that I was actually quite happy last summer, that the slough of despond which has dominated the past 2 years of my life wasn’t completely unbroken. I have no words sufficient to express my gratitude for her memento, which has revived my memories of this forgotten good cheer. :)

- #2. A funny thing happened on my way to this article
- Roleplaying as art? Not for me
- It's art Jim, but not as we know it!
