In the land of dungeons and dragons, misty rain and cold blustery winds, the Christmas market sprawled along the face of a hill with its wares both made by local artisans indigenous to Scotland as well as those made in China.  Next door, 400 artists worldwide exhibiting their works at the National Museum.

“Primal Colors”, stills from a performative piece – Hunger, Thirst, Shelter and Faith – based on the celebrated words of Steve Jobs, “Stay hungry, stay foolish”, are expressions of a visceral state stripped of acquired emblems of validation.
