Crime was psychologized in the nineteenth century, Michel Foucault claimed. At that time judges were no longer simply experts in the law, but experts in the criminal mind as well. Criminals not only had to do their time; they also had to reflect upon and understand their crimes. Or, if the defendant is a police officer, a specific state of mind—my life was in danger—stops all reflection upon, all interrogation of an action.

It would be hard to separate the growth of interest in art from the increasingly visual culture created by the internet and mobile technology. In the age of Instagram, communicating through images has become a necessary part of contemporary life. No longer a luxury, finding meaning through images is becoming a Maslovian need.
