more discussions

part 5 continues along the same style as part 4, with the bulk of comments focusing on the implications of Rothko's work, reflecting on Schama's voice-over comments (the Seagram commission)

Most of the postings date back to between 1 and 2 years ago, although the most recent one was 4 months ago. Only 25 comments are noted. Top comments here were made 3 and 2 years ago.

Following all the comments from part 1 onward, direct exchange (i.e. in reply) is between 2 commentators, never in group. Posts may be the result though of reflective readings in general, but due to the time separation, it is not always clear how communication is affected. The nature of YouTube would make it difficult to have group discussion, unless viewers would actively engage at the same time.

Interestingly in this part, 2 commentators do not use pseudonyms.

Google/Youtube offers a personal profile on individuals, with a viewing profile of other YouTube uploads.
