In 2007, the Washington Post set up a social experiment involving Joshua Bell, famous Violinist, busking at the L'enfant Plaza station in Washington during the morning rush hour. The premise was whether beauty would transcend the busy pace of City life. The results of the experiment were not shocking, if somewhat saddening. A total of 1070 people walked past the famous, highly skilled musician, playing complex, stunning pieces, with, at most, a glance at the source of the music. What's interesting is that every child that walked past Joshua Bell that day, paid attention to the beautiful pieces, only to be hurried away by busy parents. Once the experiment was over, seven people (one of whom recognised him for the celebrity he is) had stopped to listen and he had gathered a total of $32.17 from the people who had dropped lose change and dollars for him.
The small scale experiment gave rise to some interesting questions. For example, if there had been a small crowd gathering, would more people have gathered and paid attention to the famous musician? For the artist himself, the fact he had relative little validation for his incredible skill mean he was no longer any good? Can something pure and lovely, like a violin played by a world class violinist, ever compete with the demands of a busy work-life?
The study of Psychology can help understand and dissect what happened that day and why it happened. The study of the mind is a powerful tool to help us understand the complexities of life.
