Trevor Paglen

Thanks to Y’ng for the heads up on Trevor Paglen.
I, for one, have gone straight out to order his most recent book. Not because it exposes the wonderfully rich correlation between metaphysical symbology and the military’s need to express the unexpressable through iconic representations of purpose and status. No, its because when I opened the site and saw the patches I was taken hurtling back to the warmest days of my boyhood when the sole reason for existence was to have my mother sew patches onto my denim jacket.

Patches, patches, patches. I hope their day in the fickle fashion sunlight returns soon. I must have a word with my man in marketing…
