“The Wilderness and the Desert of the Real” by Geoff Hall

Whilst caught in the web of contemporary delusions we end up creating work which mimics the side-shows in the postmodern carnival; aping the ‘norms’ and forms in The Desert of the Real. Do we seek illusory relevance or an authenticity which leads to credibility? If we choose relevance, then we become mere mimics. If we choose authenticity, then we become creators of imaginative landscapes through which others can travel. Our concern is creating future landscapes, not attempting to follow the winds of fleeting trends in the here and now. We generate the possibility of redemption, we do not add to postmodern turbulence.
