“Read me! I am not going to change your life, I am your life. You are now living in the shopmodern condition. Forget art history. Remember image shopping. The only –ism after postmodernism is consumerism. Aesthetics and economics have merged into aesthetonomics, being is becoming, existence is exchange, and design has become the designed – Who are you? Google yourself up! The Internet has become the shopwindow to the world. You are designed for consumption.”
Linda Rampell, PhD, is a design theorist and lecturer. In The Shopmodern Condition Rampell offers a critical panorama of contemporary design capitalism.
