Auto-oppression reaches new heights. Or depths. Crypto-imperialism, rehabilitating cultural difference as cultural difference. How people can keep a straight face whilst comparing the “fiction” of Western Culture to the romanticised projections of “Other” (sic.) Cultures I’ll never know. But whilst enjoying the frisson of superior moral inferiority, do bear in mind that other canons may just be based on exclusion, or even be fictions themselves, and that fiction is not exactly a marginal element of human culture.
I spent lots of time in the lab as well, making some Psychetecture in PhotoShop amongst other things. It was the first time I had my work put on the web (and the first time I’d been on the Internet). I don’t have the files any more, they wouldn’t fit on a disk then and the site isn’t there now.
People still use the word “vernacular” too much. Vernacular to postmodern graphic design is like Pastoral to yBA art: a displaced, ironised aesthetic social virtue masquerading as an aesthetic.
