- the emphasis on dismissal by identification and a utilitarian sense of priority in art-philosohpy - i.e how does it contribute? what does it give us? how does it make life new? so much is out there that no one holds the countercultural advantage these days. everything is countercultural and so not countercultural at all in so being.
- false promises rooted in dreams that get swept away with the changing tides - nothing permanent or lasting ever happens today because nothing is valued beyond its ability to be some new idea or new creative tool for us all to use and all are busy creating.
the quantity of these that are produced today and overlooked are evidence of that. we are in a sea of invention and so invention is no longer thrilling to anyone - especially because of technology available to anyone, bleeding edge, everything that is invented can be made closely enough related to everything else that the thing that is invented isn't even new. its muddy waters where all the "individual" is homogeneous.
so it's me dancing with me, like most people are dong nowadays anyway - isolation through constant connection
