revisiting John Berger
John Berger passed away yesterday and I wanted to reflect on the influence he’s had on my own education and perspective. I often bitterly think my Parsons education was lacking when it comes to criticality but I remember that it gave me this, at least. I was introduced to Berger’s work before I was even a baby designer, in my first weeks as a freshman at Parsons and that perspective cannot be taken for granted. It’s because of work like Berger’s that I feel inspired and capable to talk about and think about the way we see the world and the artifice we create.
