Sally Grizzell Larson, Axiom
The rhythm of clapping hands, the repetition of images in equally timed segments: We are lulled and seduced. Like any other high functioning receptor, the human brain is indiscriminate about what it picks up. How then do we resist the seemingly benign when we’re mesmerized by it in spite of our better judgment?
