In our day and age of constant, continuous, and instantaneous connectivity via our technological communications we think we are closer to one another yet in reality, we are much further apart. We share, we like, we tweet, and we comment but how often do we debate at length on literature, wax exhaustively regarding brushstroke techniques, or lose our minds in a lengthy impromptu musical solo performance? We connect but its as fleeting as a rock skipping across the smooth surface of a silent river. We are so very far away from the intimate and intense days of salon show when peers, colleagues, and friends exposed their art and their ideas to a group of individuals collected for the singular connection of fostering, critiquing, and protecting the cultural production of the day. In the spirit of returning to the intention of historical salons and academies and returning to a more natural state of discourse and hopefully a more natural state of ourselves.
