    hmmm. I need some time to digest the message as well as the context of some of the posters. It is certainly interesting.

    An interesting view, presented in a spectacularly uninteresting torrent of low-grade artspeak.

    Cheers,

    As someone who is in communications for a living, I want a special place in hell for those who insist speaking and writing in artspeak along side those who use MBA jargon.

    I read the article and I pined for clarity.

    Name-dropping artspeak. After reading it, I still have no idea of why it was written. But I suppose that these are the people who determine public taste in photography. (I hope not.)

    If at least it was using REAL jargon. I find some of the ideas interesting (hey, I've had them myself too, so how could I disagree with myself?), but the tone is annoying, and the analytic powers a bit thin. Oh, and way too many epithets too.

    For instance: "Perhaps the pungent and effective double act of sex and violence that had been slickly conveyed by the heavily retouched fashion imagery of the late 1990s was more dangerous, unpalatable and un-commissionable in post-9/11 austerity. The classic, neo-conservative production values of recent studio-based monochrome might actually be another point where black-and-white's reprieve from potential cultural extinction seems to be felt."

    Interesting how someone writing about black and white also sees the world as black and white, eh?

    The "point" of artspeak escapes me; for what purpose does it exist, apart from serving to obfuscate the text's subject?

    Perhaps to hide the fact the speaker has little original thought to convey?
