"This is what the end of the world will sound and look like - dark slow and brooding with giant pixels crashing into our minds." (Draw, drawingsilence.com/)
"The modernist avant-garde ideology was based on originality and authenticity. After WW2, May '68 and the development of postmodern philosophy this was no longer a tenable position to defend. However, particular forms and ideas remained entangled with certain authors who were critically attributed their invention. After Pollock, no more drip paintings, they cried. This begs the question: why has the avant-garde classically been afraid of revisiting its ideas?"
