Associative thinking is something many of us engage in. A lot of resonant art is made that way, but a lot of lazy art too.
At its worst, associative thinking is a kind of junk food -- it is fun, it fills the gap, then it makes us feel bad for having succumbed to it.
As a Vancouverite I cannot help but look at other urban centres through the city I was born and raised in. If the Eldorado Hotel is to Kelowna what the Sylvia Hotel is to Vancouver, then the same could be said of Kelowna's Towne Centre Mall to Vancouver's Kingsgate Mall.
At bottom is a kiosk at the south end of Kelowna's Towne Centre Mall. On the upper rack are rings, earrings, necklaces and tea cups; on the lower rack, knives, knives, knives and knives.
