When Art Informs Life

by

I just came across an article in Esquire Magazine that featured work by R. Luke Dubois who had a brilliant idea.  He took every president’s State of the Union Address and analyzed the most common words.  He then put them into a backlit eye chart by frequency.  I think it speaks for itself.  Check out other presidents through time at his website.  The collection is called “Hindsight is 20/20”.

    Wow, Prof. Hardon I didn’t know you were so cultured. Looking at the past presidential hindsights is another reminder of how much America loves being in a state of fear and viewing the world as us versus them. I much prefer your version of UvT.
