The customer is always right and let the latest installment of Fitterman's polyphonic, sprawling METROPOLIS be the proof of the pudding. We've come full circle. No longer the passive, voiceless victims of draconian capitalist forces, consumer culture allows us to exercise the subjectivity we've been granted via interpolation (see Barbara Kruger's I shop therefore I am) by talking back to the machine. Disaffected consumers of the world, unite!™ Why vote with our feet when we can churn out chatter in the comfort of our homes? Anybody listening? Fitterman certainly is.
