Ep. 030: Potty Training Talk, Fact vs Fallacy, and Formalist Art

This week, the trio is back together after some hardcore nomad-ing by Daniel. This episode starts of with potty training and from there we catch up and banter about what has been going on in our lives.

We introduce the new topic and series about “formalist” art and what we’d like to cover, and what you can look forward to hearing, over this next series of casts.

So what is formalist art? Basically in art, Formalism is the study of art by analyzing and comparing form and style—the way objects are made and their purely visual aspects. You can think of a canvas with three colors all evenly painted onto it, looking a lot like a nation’s flag. There is no rhyme or reason for this, it almost purely composition and complimenting shapes and colors.

After dealing with this, we end with a game that you all can participate in—what we call fact vs fallacy. In this game, we each tell three stories from our youth, two of which are true and one that is a lie. Your job is to determine which is a lie and comment on the episode’s post, before anyone else, and tell us which one you think is the false story. The first person to guess the correct one will win a copy of the highly applicable books Finding Truth or Total Truth by Nancy Pearcey.

Good luck and may the odds ever be in your favor…
