P O S T M O D E R N M I C H A E L
"Michael Jackson was the penultimate post-modern artist; the permanent impression of a person being able to transform race, gender, age, and identity with the use of mass media is an artform. Like a human collage Michael had a tiny doll nose, pretty pink lips, fawn eyes, opalescent skin, Liz Taylor hair and Kirk Douglas jaw line. Only in our futuristic present are people able to transform their physical being to match their internal identity, anyone can change their look, even in the slums of Brazil breast augmentation is big business. Michael Jackson was a true visionary who understood the synergy of image, performance and marketing to penetrate the minds of people even to the farthest corners of Earth."
