I grew up during the cold war, studied political science, and interviewed with the National Security Agency.  The interviewer asked about my hobbies and when I replied, "art," he suggested I go back to school to "get it out of my system".  Went to art school, but worked as a systems oriented family therapist.  My experience with the NSA made me I realize that art was potentially "subversive".  Family therapy taught me that seemingly intractable family and organization problems can spontaneously resolve by "reframing" or relabeling them into something different.   So, returning to art, can it similarly subvert/reframe cultural problems?
