Okay now, I'm going to ask you to indulge me here. We are going to do a little experiment. This will be an experiment about visceral response, versus reasoned consideration. What the hell am I talking about? I am talking about an experiment that exposes just how deeply encoded our first responses are to what we see in regards to Attire. I am going to give you a series of images, and your mission is to look at each one, note your immediate reaction, and then look again with a more critical eye. Try see further than your first response allows. It's not an easy thing to get past. I know, it stymies me a good deal too. But as a method of explaining the intense potency of Attire and its effect upon us, it's a fine tool to use.
The secondary object is of course to broaden our understanding, and our tastes. If we understand more of the words in the lexicon of Attire, that can only help us to understand each other more fully in the long run.
Oh, and I will not be making any commentary of my own, this is your chance to step up and do the dissemination of an ensemble's meanings. Once you've gotten through this, let me know how you felt and what you saw, either by posting here or on facebook.
So, let's get to it, shall we?
