Sam Jacob and Bruce Sterling on the New Aesthetic

Via a G+ #hashtag I came an oldish Interview with Bruce Sterling, re: the New Aesthetic with David Albert Cox of Coxblog, published on Examiner.com here. Therein, Mr. Sterling suggested the New Aesthetic is a clear and “deliberate reaction against atemporality” which also emphasizes processuality.

Meanwhile, over at Sam Jacob’s site personal site Strange Harvest I read an article he wrote for COMMONPLACE, a version of Fulcrum, published at this years (2012) Venice Biennale. Therein Mr. Jacob noted that New Aesthetic “reeks of something suspiciously like nostalgia” and then goes on to analyze/link the New Aesthetic as/to “just another fastbred cultural cycle”.
