What is art? It is the expression of ideas through the use of different and creative mediums. Our life is filled with art and we are surrounded by it. From the way things are constructed to the beauty of a beautifully done essay or drawing, art is everywhere. But what happens when someone tries to be avante-garde and would like to experience art in a different and untraditional way? The result can actually be two things: one of utter disgust or one that truly astounds. Personally I am not a master or knowledgeable enough to really appreciate the finer points of art, but when I watched Bambalina Production’s version of Miguel Cervantes’s epic “Quijote” at the Instituto Cervantes, I was floored.
What is it with ramen that drives me and Tricia nuts? Is it the flavors that truly numb our palate and our mind? Is it that overload of steaming noodles and the perfection to minute details that bring us to our knees? Or is it the overly long lines and the exagerratedness of it all that just simply catches us our attention? There are just so many questions that I am not entirely that one bowl or two in Ippudo would be able to answer. What I do know though is, for all of its hype there was something lacking in the whole experience.
