Put the pigeon among the paintings

I think I figured out how Chad Dawkins is reviewing all those CAM shows:

In this study, I investigated whether pigeons could be trained to discriminate between paintings that had been judged by humans as either “bad” or “good”. To do this, adult human observers first classified several children’s paintings as either “good” (beautiful) or “bad” (ugly). Using operant conditioning procedures, pigeons were then reinforced for pecking at “good” paintings. After the pigeons learned the discrimination task, they were presented with novel pictures of both “good” and “bad” children’s paintings to test whether they had successfully learned to discriminate between these two stimulus categories. The results showed that pigeons could discriminate novel “good” and “bad” paintings.

This study was published recently in Animal Cognition (hat tip).

I got a call from the neighbor that there was a loud noise upstairs.

Hector Hernandez makes some odd, lascivious objects and he recently exhibited new works at Robot Art Gallery. Check it out before they move down the street to be in the hotbed of activity near Unit B, Sala Diaz and Cupcake Gallery…Robot is relocating to the old Bower space, we’re looking forward to some amazing shows this summer/fall!! Good luck, Jessica! And keep painting those panties, Hector! Looks good.
