Sometimes you just can’t help but be angry about some things. It seems that 2020 and 2021 was a free pass to take it to a new level. Anger isn’t so bad, but the way we process it and respond to it is a different story. Some people have even made a career out of mocking people, pointing self-righteous fingers, and acting like all the problems are solely found in other people. We just can’t take it anymore.
This week Ryan and Garreth sit down to talk about spewing anger when the work of an artist or designer might actually be about something else. The world we live in now is not the world in which we will one day love, and in the past, artists and designers were about envisioning that new world, not just burning down the one we are in now.
