This is unrelated to the current topic, but related to the course.Here's a link to a David Carson - The End of Print video with William S. Borough reading his writing.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mu__SYNHKSQ&feature=relatedAnd a question: Professor Coffeen, what do you think about David Carson?
I am ambivalent about Carson. Or perhaps it's better to say that I have no strong feeling one way or the other. But I do miss his will to the decentered and the chaotic -- everything these daze is so neo-classical.
It's funny how design writers and critics took his work so seriously.Design critic: "Why did you put black text on a black boot"Carson: "I didn't see the prints. It's a mistake!"
The riff in the last lecture where you talked about infinity was great. "Infinite possibilities doesn't mean anything is possible." Around that part.
