Abstract

My work investigates the argument of nature vs. nurture, and explores the influence of time, place and context in creating perspective, stress, memories, and learned behaviors. Tragedy, terrorism, chemical warfare, bombs. These are all pressing issues. However, if one wants to look at killers that dwarf any terror attack, than look no further than your kitchen table. Diseases, such as obesity, diabetes, and hypertension are true terrors because they are silent killers. Placebo Nocebo and The Big Event are investigations of lifestyle, culture, personal choices and the positive or negative potential they have in the context of their environment.
