Hate going into rants but its just so frustrating, Culture feels so contrived these days, I mean it may have always been so but in this era of fame and money everyone even college students seems to be aiming for those two things. Artists in art school want to be collected by saatchi and sold in Philip de Pury as soon as they graduate, whilst fashion students aim to be on catwalks and in stores sharpish although these things can and do happen its rare.
The high standards and ambition is not what I am knocking but its the level of control that one has over their work, just knowing what they are creating and who they are trying to create it for. Are there no bohemians left? The wild artists that live on the margins unable to fit in to mainstream society and create simply to create and to express themselves or is this just a myth.
People 'creatives' 'artists' etc etc all pretend to be different and pretend to be bohemians market themselves as this when really they are corporate clowns as evil and money hungry as those in the city.
Culture used to excite me now its just a big blur of boring events where people copy one another with the desperate need to try and create a movement make a statement be shocking just to shock and simply to get attention
