Vanessa Mitter ‘Aesthetics of Emptiness Manifesto’
“We want surface. Death to depth. Rebuild exteriors. Superficiality rules. Burn down thesignifiers. Kill knowledge. Prettiness is all and prettiness is everything. Our model world is vacant. Surface dominates. Surface orientates. Long live surface! Long live surfeit! Our modelworld is vacant. We live on the surface. We live on the edges of things. Dumbness dominates. Long live reality TV! Death to politics! Dumb down. Surface dominates. Veneer venerates valueless void. Long live glib one-liners! Gloss pervades; creeps forth from the corners of shinymagazine covers. We love outer packaging. Nothing lies beneath. Surface is everything.Vacancy rules. We are aesthetes of emptiness. Long live Jade Goody! Long live prettiness! Death to beauty!”
