Everything else is stylization

Intelligence is really a kind of taste- taste in ideas.”- Susan SontagFailure is notan option (2).png

We don’t need art. We don’t need Instagram. We don’t need bottled water.

These are styles and preferences that enrich the satisfaction of our lives but aren’t things we need to live. They are products we consume when we don’t have to starve, which the vast bulk of people did before the 19th century Industrial Revolution.

We have to eat. We have to clothe ourselves and move.  Everything else: our food preference, type of clothes, and our favorite photography apps are all examples of stylization.
