Reflective Space

“reflective space in which a public so used to being psychologically bludgeoned into a consumerist daze can find some respite from the relentless static of the modern world.” – Robert Montgomery

When I’m constantly bombarded by visual ads on print, web, billboards, shirts, telly and guerilla marketing, anything visual that actually manages to stand out and touch me is always a welcome mental relief. With all the lies out there in politics and marketing tactics trying to brainwash us into believing, buying and converting from one phone plan to another religion, its nice to see “the truth” from time to time. I like that Robert is not afraid to confront the vexatious facts, forcing us to look into ourselves for the nuances of life, instead of outward consolation found on billboards that encourages meaningless purchase and cowardly conformity for social acceptance.
