& / versus?
“We live amidst the rise of design culture over art culture.
Design is a practice of social and financial capital. It seeks
to make things. Art, on the other hand, creates affect
— experiences outsideof capital. This doesn’t mean art is
not a commodity; it means the experience of art is not
while the experience of design is, necessarily. It’s not that
design is bad; design is important, improving the quality of
everyday life. But design is creativity put to work for capital.
And it seems everyone today is a designer and no one
is an artist.”
