multimedia and paparazzi
I totally agree with what Amy Stein says in this post:
I just read this Wired article wherein the author hires her own paparazzo at $500/hr to stalk her throughout the day. The goal is to take “artful images that look unstaged and off-the-cuff.”
…this is further evidence that our cultural engine is running on fumes. I have not put the numbers into the computer yet, but I have a theory that our culture is about to become so self-referential that it collapses under it’s own weight of ironic self-awareness and forms a giant black hole of metaness.
