In July 2011, a white bear; a beast from the back of the mind, was in residence in CCA’s Creative Lab. In Glasgow, it wanted to study the history and the beastly aspects of the free market, a market tat was apparently invented here in 1776. At the moment the bear is editing a videodiary from this journey, and as it works it’s way through the it’s summer experiences in Glasgow, it will post it’s reflections here. This is the second post from it’s diary, and it is about misunderstandings and not being able to get your idea across the way you intendend it. A problem that the Glaswegian free market pioneer Adam Smith, must have known all too well.
