I'm a graphic designer, production artist and writer based in Toronto, Ontario.
This site primarily features posts about popular and literary culture. It is a celebration of the voices of artists and writers; of critiquing, highlighting, praising and illuminating their work. There are also posts on social justice and political activism.
The blog name comes from a passage in Jonathan Franzen’s novel Freedom, in the words of the character Walter Berglund:
“This was what was keeping me awake at night,” Walter said. “This fragmentation. Because it's the same problem everywhere. It’s like the internet, or cable TV — there's never any centre, there’s no communal agreement, there’s just a trillion bits of distracting noise … All the real things, the authentic things, the honest things, are dying off.”
