ARCI591: Signs, Signifiers, Signified.
This is intended to be a private interface that accumulates a particular genealogy of precedents, influences, and personal work. I do not wish to participate in the infinite and despicable re-appropriation, decontextualization, and pseudo-intellectual back-patting of images now afforded to the unimaginative and creatively challenged (via, via, via). Please show your respect by exhausting yourself of the minimal effort required to source the information at it's origins - I do not want (neither deserve) credit for work that is not my own, merely a facility through which I can keep relevant information.
This Tumblr utilizes the medium for what it is (storage) - any attempt to instill a greater level of academic rigour should be committed to the critically democratic medium of print. I do not look at other Tumblr's, and subsequently don't/won't re-blog or "Follow".
“We will find no answer in a naive belief that the difficulty [of representation] can be resolved by subordinating all knowledge and different ways of making to instrumental rationality and technology. Whole areas of [cultural] reality are not amenable to such treatment, and perpetuating the belief that they are merely deepens the dilemma.”
