from Integral Reality

from Jean Baudrillard – Integral reality

To turn any object into a piece of art you just have to make it useless.

To turn reality itself into an art object, you just need to make a useless function out of it.

Some interesting thoughts there, although of course we reject’s Baudrillard’s purely negative interpretation of art/sign/metaphor.

… ref for example Fictions of commodity culture:

In particular, Kellner detects a ‘technophobia’ and ‘nostalgia for face-to-face conversation’ in Baudrillard which is priveleged ‘over debased and abstract media communication’. Like many others, Kellner criticizes Baudrillard for his refusal to see ‘the possibility of “responsible” or “emancipatory” media communication’.
