some seeing eye wrote:Ad agencies and films are influenced by BM because the creative/art directors and costume designers for them vacation at BM. The ad industry has been appropriating from creative culture since the 1960's. Sure examples can be found in the film industry from the beginning.
I agree with this. Many people go to TTITD and then take inspiration back to their daily jobs. I have no issue with that at all. Isn't that what we should do? Appreciate art when it strikes us? Integrate pieces of the event in defaultia as much as we can? Without commodifying of course.
There is a commercial playing on TV now and again that has a dubstep song as the background music and every time I hear it I think of the playa, and it warms my heart. I can't even tell you what it's advertising because my brain goes elsewhere when it comes on.
In dust we trust.
