2.07 Prisoner’s Dilemma: White Bored, Fairey and Dilbert


Shepard Fairy Dilbert

It’s the very first time in this series that I declare defeat. I don’t know what inspired Swan’s White Bored except Dilbert and Fairey and both aren’t a real match. It reminds me though of the Post It office window art wave that swept over Berlin a while ago and was really just a secret support campaign for Beuys’ ‘Everyone is an artist.’ (that was sarcasm for those who haven’t caught it). In the end the theme of White Bored is a great lead in to Corporate Man and is the perfect frame for a story line about a man sticking to his moral principles despite the obstacles he has to face.
