Limits of Structure --- Day 6/173

Walk: Opera Plaza Cinema (Columbus), Asian Art Museum
Distance:  almost 3 miles, small yoga stretch

The edifying, calming aspects of external artistic structure compared with actual unstructured realities of life.  Ciwt encountered this thought-provoking concept back to back today.  First at the very 'clean' and structured but also internally tumultuous movie, Columbus. and then at the Asian Art Museum. Asian art is carefully ordered according to exacting and honored techniques.  The appearance of most Asian art, artifacts and achitecture is thus very serene.  But not so the histories (and present) of any of the Asian countries.
