Well this is the best post I've seen in some time.
Why are we enthralled with work that embraces mediocrity?
I think it has to do with our own self-loathing.
I know everyone is going to complain and say : I don't fit that requirement!
Perhpas they don't, but they still skim youtube for dumb information and fools on display.
It's become a part of everyday activity for so many, and you wonder why.
I don't have an answer. The http://www.slanderous.org
website was included in Prix Ars 2007, and it is as lowly and as dumbed down as one can get, It was done that way with purpose, but why does it still attract viewers?
It is by my own definition useless, and an aesthetic dead end, yet it remains popular,
so perhaps the answer reveals more about ourselves in real time than it does about our aspirations.
We are simpler than we want to admit, and far less complicated than we should be.
