A Phoenix Weekend

I heard an interview today where a graphic designer mentioned that his design/film work often felt more subversive than his art because his ideas reached a far broader group of people (other than just art people I’m assuming).  I often wonder if making critical commentary through the context of art is more effective compared to subtly placing information into the world without labeling it art or poetry or something “important”.  Art seems too easily dismissible these days.

By the way, these are some pictures I took this weekend while at Phoenix Comic Con.  Lately I’ve been interested in about a hundred things, one being film and it’s nostalgic properties that give it an almost automatic feeling of importance.  Another is the way buildings and walkways can guide us through a space without us ever knowing our paths have been been directed.

    If you are interested in walkways and buildings directing our paths, you really should go to Vegas. The hotels seem like mazes, and each and every path winds back through the casino, without you even knowing how or why you got there.
