Victoria Cooper+Doug Spowart Blog

Recently I was commissioned to write a piece for the State Library of Queensland’s Design Online Blog.

I chose to write a commentary on the proliferation of images on social media and connect it with the Andy Warhol statement about everyone having 15 minutes of fame.

The  Design Online blog has as its mission the following proposition:

Every idea, thought, or position has an origin, and often this origin exists in the ideas, thoughts and positions of others. Design Online creates a shared environment for the design community to come together in the creation of new knowledge centred around design in the Asia Pacific.
