Call me Celina. This forum still have a long way to go until it gets filled with its intended public. And I'll do my best to help us reach that goal. I'm a battleaxe, and when you hear my voice it'll be as loud as a thunder and as clear as a blue sky.

Post modernism/deconstructionism.

Basic idea is that everything carries within it subtexts and hidden meanings that are revealed through the application of processes and strategies.

An example: every painting by a particular artist includes a small lamb placed in an inferior position within the larger composition. By "repetition" we identify that the presence of the lamb has larger meaning/significance to the artist, the position within the composition implies submission or sacrifice, yadda yadda.


For the most part, it's intellectual wank.
