WELCOME TO THE DESERT OF THE REAL (on White)

$24.00



"Welcome to the desert of the real" is a title from one of Slavoj Žižek's books. Žižek's title is a quote from Morpheus in the movie the Matrix.

Morpheus says these words to Neo as he wakes from his computer-generated virtual reality, experiencing the "Real" as a desolate, dystopian, yet spectacular geography.

Morpheus's quote is referencing a passage from the book Simulacra and Simulation by Jean Baudrillard. Read Baudrillard's book and see if this long bullshit explanation is anyway justified by this design.

Black on white.
