Negative Capability Has More Fun

PRESENTED ON NOV 20, 2016

Yes, it's a term from postmodernist literary theory. But Ann Glaviano explains that the concept of negative capability has practical and pleasurable applications for all humans in our day-to-day lives. She talks about getting comfortable with confusion. No knowledge of obscure 'po-mo' references required.

Yes, I Am Not The Kind of Double Negative That Does Not Make Me Not Positive

BY SEAN HASEY
@ VOL 25 ON JAN 09, 2019

Sean Hasey is a painter, sculptor, and musician, here in Biddeford. He has exhibited his work very little and sold even less, so subsidizes his art sales as a massage therapists at the newly opened Hark House, which he co-owns with his partner Chrystina—with whom he enjoys moderately long walks on the beach with their dog Max, romantic dinners at dusk, and bubble baths in the tub.

Finally, Hasey is the co-author of Merderers [sic], A Narative Text, and its underwhelming sequel, Merderers New York. Both works of fiction are best described as nearly post-apocalyptic forays into the immediate future. After one reader bought Merderers in a Portland bookstore, they returned to the store shortly after making their purchase, demanded their money back, and offered the following critique: “This piece of trash is completely amoral.”

A Daily Dose of Fun

BY KARINE HAMM
@ VOL 22 ON MAR 02, 2019

To infuse a little dose of fun into traditional physical rehabilitation, Karine explains how Douglas College has  created a series of videogames that respond to body movement. For exmaple, if you are trying to rehabilitate the ankle you can move the paddle in a brick breaker game by moving your toes up and down. These games are affordable because the controllers are created from off-the shelf sensors to create accessibility to people who may have financial or physical barriers to receiving their daily dose of fun.
