MANIFESTO

  • People aren’t brands: do not require, enable or encourage one-dimensionality in other people or yourself.
  • Creation without guilt:  start things without knowing where they’re going and don’t feel bad about it.
  • People aren’t brands: coherence isn’t a distinctive human trait.
  • Creation without production: you’re allowed to create things that are not and will never be products.
  • People aren’t brands: cognitive dissonance can distort your perception of others and yourself.
  • Public Display of Imperfection: be as publicly flawed as your life allows.
  • People aren’t brands: resolve to be an agent of nuance, averse to extremes and joyfully convoluted.
  • True is better than cutesy: truth is often found in the ugly, the rotten, the broken – all things that make us uncomfortable.
  • People aren’t brands: you’re allowed to change your mind, yourself and your environment. Allow the same to others.

    I can not get over the pink & the dolphin in the toilet. It’s not cute, it’s nightmarish.

    I am so glad you took one for the team & ventured in so no one else ever needs to.

    • Fede

      I’m glad you appreaciated it, Ebe, especially considering that I will never be able to sit on the toilet again without having the creeps

    I had to read this post again, it was an unforgettable experience.

  5. Hi Fede, I just found your blog…I think your post is hilarious! I remember seeing the exhibition but I didn’t go, as the whole experience of a totally pink world, would scare and scar me!

    • Fede

      I know Victoria, it was indeed scary, but someone had to made the sacrifice and document all those horrors ;-P
