From Gino 2015, Understanding Ordinary Unethical Behavior:
"A person’s moral behavior can be affected by the moral actions of just one other person. Gino et al. found that when an in-group member behaves unethically and the behavior is visible to others, people follow suit: they behave unethically themselves. Others’ behavior can influence our own even when the bond we share is quite labile or subtle. For instance, sharing the same birthday of a person who cheated leads us to cheat as well..."
I was on KUOW today, discussing the Wing Luke exhibit, VR experience "Dark Shapes," and the short story it was based on, "The Wretched and the Beautiful," with Kelly Campelia and Michi Trota!

@elilyyu really truly lovely! I adore how funny this one is all the way through, even though it's shot through with deep grief & longing & everything still has real, hard consequences.
"Reimagining the world becomes far more difficult, and reflecting back what power brokers and institutional administrators think about themselves feels essential to survival. This is a much more difficult environment to imagine one's self as an artist, negotiate the expense of art-making, and—most challenging of all—to be allowed, by the tight fist of the prevailing institutions, to emerge without losing one's soul. There seems to be no other game in town. Right now" (82).
"Under gentrification, what is possible for young artists, hence how they see themselves, is dramatically different. They cannot afford to live or work. They are faced with conformity of aesthetics and values in their neighborhoods. Conventional bourgeois behavior becomes a requirement for surviving socially, developing professionally, and earning a living. By necessity, their goals are altered."
