Once you stop worrying about making designers feel good about themselves, it is very hard to still bother about almost everything that currently passes as «design theory». Not there aren’t issues and concerns that are theoretical and about design, there are aplenty and indeed they become more and more important and relevant in our mediated world. And now you can actually think about this stuff without trying to make it sound like design is oh so important. The disgusting part of it all is when you discover that, as soon as you start thinking about stuff that matters, designers stop paying attention — they just want to sound cool and thoughtful, but as for the “thinking” part of it, please keep it for yourself.
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.
