I was looking at an ad/news about "nine rooms designers" created.
And it made me think of the fashion runways where angry-faced, too-skinny women parade one kind of clothing or another.
And the same question arose in my head: Who actually lives in these rooms? Who actually wears these clothes? Not one of the rooms had bookshelves with books that had been read on them. Not one bit of clothing related to the daily life of anyone relatively sane.
No doubt someone will have a snappy response to my questions, but the thing that interests me is how much we rely on someone else's taste or persuasion or religion. Of course there are good hints in what others do and think and say, but I believe a morgue has more character than the designer rooms and a bum is more creative than the runway ads.
And that's the point, I think. Suggestions are suggestions ... just suggestions for you or suggestions for me. No need to rely on them. If you want to worship snakes, go ahead ... just be good at it. Relying on someone else's designer snakes or religion -- well, how much useful sense does that make?
