“Glamour cannot exist without personal social envy being a common and widespread emotion. The industrial society which has moved towards democracy and then stopped half way is the ideal society for generating such an emotion. The pursuit of individual happiness has been acknowledged as a universal right. Yet the existing social conditions make the individual feel powerless. He lives in the contradiction between what he is and what he would like to be. Either he then becomes fully conscious of the contradiction and its causes, and so joins the political struggle for a full democracy which entails, amongst other things, the overthrow of capitalism; or else he lives, continually subject to an envy which, compounded with his sense of powerlessness, dissolves into recurrent day-dreams.” – John Berger, Ways of Seeing

I’ve often had a hard time explaining to people (non-art-y- people, that is) about what my work is about, and why i make what I make. My “art friends” understand my rambling statements about my work, but when I address my “regular” friends, I sometimes lose them in the process of explanation.
Clearly, the following link does not explain the specifics of my work (cause its not about my work…so that makes sense…) but it gets to the heart of what I am trying to accomplish with my current works.
