In design circles, it is boringly common to hear that “design is not art”, usually uttered by people who do not know much about art (or design, for that matter, for those people tend to be doers that refuse to think at all costs). This “is not art” thinguie, though, was at a certain point in time a very common thing to say amongst artists. That is to say, the “art is not art” slogan was a fashionable artistic expression. It turns out that an even more sophisticated form of this stance has developed: post-modernism. It consists of enforcing contradictory but good-sounding definitions and theories in such a way as to generate awe (and unhappily confusion). That is why you can never say what post-modernism is or is not. It is a fairly neat trick, too. The only bad thing is that some confuse this art-form for argumentation.
Truth of the Lesser Men is a collection of ideas and short essays by a young male Brazilian called marcio rocha pereira, in a not-so-fluent English.
The subject is the world, society, live and how we live it. Or something like it. It is my attempt at understanding everything that happens all around me, an ontological travel journal of sorts. Which probably translates into, quite simply, my own opinions and thinking.
Nevertheless, i don’t know what i am, or if being something is important to me, or what you mean by “being something” — so that I can hardly answer the questions of what I do, or work with, or any of the other identity-assigning questions. If you are really interested, check the personal info.
The idea of this blog is to avoid rewriting as much as possible, and to write different takes to the same ideas if the need arise, instead of modifying. This is to avoid a constant state of in-progress.
Love or hate, i am always open for criticism (and i'll even accept praise with as much grace as i can manage). Hope you like it.
