A) The future has imploded onto the present. There was no nuclear Armageddon. There’s too much Real Estate to lose. The new battlefield is people’s minds. B) The megacorps ARE the new governments. C) The U.S. is a big bully with lackluster economic power. D) The world is splintering into a trillion subcultures and designer cults with their own languages, codes, and lifestyles. E) Computer-generated info-domains are the next frontiers. F) There IS better living through chemistry. G) Small groups or individual “console cowboys” can wield tremendous power over governments, corporations, etc. H) The coalescence of a computer “culture” is expressed in self-aware computer music, art, virtual communities, and a hacker/street tech subculture. The computer nerd image is passe, and people are not ashamed anymore about the role the computer has in this subculture. The computer is a cool tool, a friend, important human augmentation. I) We’re becoming CYBORGS. Our tech is getting smaller, closer to us, and it will soon merge with us. J) Some attitudes that seem to be related: - Information wants to be free. - Access to computers and anything which may teach you something about how the world works should be unlimited and total. - Always yield to the hands-on imperative. - Mistrust Authority. - Promote Decentraliztion. - Do It Yourself. Fight the Power. - Feed the noise back into the system. - Surf the Edges.
…skirts and long cardagains hmmmmmmmm Maybe khymeira or psychara would know
Mm. Interesting juxtaposition. I would imagine that Cyber Mori girls live not in a forest, but out by the large fields of vat-grown human crops. They like to drink tea and read charmingly outdated technomancy manuals by the watery light of in-vitro stasis pools. Heh.
I think you should mix and match as you please, but I’m not in the mind to offer anything but encouragement. I’m in a weird state of personal incompletion, and I’m rather disconnected from the external protocols of aesthetics.
Would you mind if I ask what got you into graphic design? It's just that, in the course at my uni that I'm doing currently you've the option of majoring in graphic design or illustration and I find both super interesting but I haven't a clue what to do for my major next year and was kinda wondering if you had any advice?
Holy shit! How did I miss this? I’m sorry!
Okay so, I was in a similar situation. I’ve been illustrating for most of my life, and when the time came, I was accepted into both well-regarded Animation Arts and Graphic Design programs, but I chose to go with the latter because, for me, illustration is a tool that I choose to use selectively. I love to draw for my own enjoyment, but the idea of having to go through the rigor of cultivating very strong traditional art skills on demand didn’t seem as fun for me.
Additionally, Graphic Design has so many various disciplines: branding/identity, packaging, industrial, motion, environmental etc, and I love the versatility that such a scope of choices can bring to my future and employability.
I personally find the ability to compose elements harmoniously (illustrations included!) is much more valuable to me, rather than being an industry-standard pro at drawing alone. Since I’ve finished my design program, I can always take a couple of life drawing classes a week or log into Proko’s site to bring myself up to speed.
I’m not sure if that rant will give you any insight, but I hope it helps!
hey, can you post pics of your hair from the sides and back??? i'm trying to collect photos to show my hair stylist tomorrow, and i love your hair. (no worries if you can't i get that that's sort of a weird thing to ask)
Hi Grey_Head, sorry I wasn’t able to provide images in time. In reality I have an undercut on all sides of my head. It’s kind of weird. Uh. Perhaps you can look up undercut hairstyles?
I suppose it’s similar to this, but the side on which it’s longer, I’ve cut above the ear. I also razored the back of my hair so that it merges into a point at the nape of my neck. Sorry I can’t be of more assistance. I took a razor to my hair and hoped for the best, honestly. Nonetheless, thank you.
This time last year, I mourned my face, and the way in which it defied the delicate ideal of my human designation; its breadth and angularity deepening unforgiving shadows on the landscape of my bones. I thought that I would find self-worth in the custody of scalpels, to refract light in the way they do.
so here’s a new jam. All me, the beat is not looped at any point, it’s just me repeating myself. Hope y’all enjoy, I’ve been working hard on this one but idk how you’ll like like it, if you dig it please share it and whatnot, thank you
