"The job of art is to upset, the job of science is to reassure. There are too many artists who want to be scientists."

— Jonathan Meades, “Bunkers, Brutalism, and Bloodymindedness” (via addicted-to-immaculate)

Quote
"…we have it in us an article of faith that improvement is no improvement. Our fondness for the ancient is a sort of resignation at our inadequacy to make a better present. It’s a folk demure shrug, it’s the pessimism that dare not speak its name"

Jonathan Meades on the attraction of Pubs. From ‘Further Abroad’ - “Where the Other Half Lives”

Everything is fantastical if you stare at it long enough."
