Albert Herter at Koenig & Clinton


The cartoon - as the primitive manifestation of the virtual, the ability to treat reality as malleability - feels more and more aptly depictive of the world currently lived, a world governed by abstraction and rulers on whims swapping crutches for legs, swamps for politics, licorice for sustenance. In the future your head will be replaced by a pumpkin and this will be the will of hand we can't see but can all infer, sense will be destroyed and replaced with something much more billowing, slapstick maybe.
