Example text

These have gone a considerable distance to collapsing space and time, and to limiting the success of any government that seeks to control the flow of images, information and ideas into and across its territory. In the past, a state could exercise a reasonable amount of control over the movement of ideas and images because they were usually disseminated in the form of objects capable of being excluded or destroyed in a way that the ephemeral forms of virtual texts (soft copy) cannot. 11 But this does not signal a new democracy of images, ideas or values: because most of the handful of companies that control the international media are American-based and because so much of the material distributed via the Internet is English-language and American-produced, for many commentators globalisation equals Americanisation.

Then, too, except for artists who work under overwhelming obligations — those living under dictatorships, for instance — few have seen themselves as necessarily committed to, or purely informed by, a unitary national sensibility.

As a practising artist, he has evolved modes of interaction with the polyvocal languages of the folk, especially the terracotta and pata traditions; more importantly, he has found a new syntax for the material vocabulary of artisanal forms.
