Example text

It is the kind of exposure any contemporary New Zealand artist would kill for. As to what the German’s motives were, I can’t say. That unfortunate boy was killed by the man whose fence he scrawled on (Ruscoe 2008). Within a few days of the glacier incident, I came across a podcast on the New York Times website showcasing graffiti in Berlin. Apparently, the German capital is considered a haven for graffiti writers from all across Europe, and boasts a wide range of different styles and schools. Given Berlin’s established graffiti culture, perhaps our Teutonic tourist was expecting a kinder reception as he honed his skills on New Zealand shores.

Compared with the first and second orders, which maintain the object and its representation as separate things, the third order complicates this way of viewing the world. This is because images are no longer different from reality, but generate our sense of reality by making us think that the stuff outside the frame is Fourth-order simulacrum Since outlining the three orders of simulacrum, Baudrillard has identified a fourth one. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the third stage has been entirely superseded.

They look like paintings really. Talking about things like mediated overdetermined images, paintings are mediated in exactly the same way as cars. They are as stupid and as mediated as cars. Especially an abstract painting is the same type of cliché. IG: Maybe these kinds of highly overdetermined and highly mediatised images are a good way to achieve the effect that you called emptiness or flatness. MC: Yes but that’s an obvious point. It’s hard to say what is interesting about that; it sounds a bit boring.
