The Art Of Critical Thinking

It’s so funny (actually it’s not), when I first saw this piece I thought does the artist mean the physical flame? The flame that ignites lovers? The flame that fuels you? Where is the flame, is it hanging in a lantern outside a cabin covered in snow signaling life? Is it perched by a bedside? There are so many ways to interpret this simple question, each with a different answer. This is how you critically think, question everything, get specifics. Are you someone who takes things at face value, or do you take a moment to cite the source and ask who, what, when, where, why? Artist: David Shrigley
