Item Description...
An 'uncanny' collection of Shawn Wolfe's most provocative work. In 1984, having spent seven years in and around advertising, Wolfe established Beatkit(tm), the world's first ever anti-brand. It was a brand without a product and was intended to be a shining example of what was sick and wrong in a culture gone mad with consumerism. From 1984 to 2000 Beatkit(tm) sought to expose the dark nature of consumerism, consumption and disposal, all of which escalate the fundamental crises of contemporary life: using up of natural resources, ecological ruin, cynicism, and alienation.

Wolfe used and reused images such as the Bionic Cat and the Removerinstaller until they had achieved the abstract presence of the Nike swoosh. Perhaps the real magic in his work is that it draws us in but delivers nothing.

Features Massive Attack, Panic Now and Too Much of a Good Thing.

Vividly Candid Snapshot of Eyeball Branding  May 28, 2000
Mr. Wolfe's ability to incentivize enterprise solutions sometimes makes you forget he's only trying to enable magnetic mindshare! When you first open the this dynamic branding tome, one can actually SMELL Wolfes ability to synergize sexy architectures by merely syndicating global vortals. Dot-com or B2B, it's all out the window! BK2000! Sheer frictionless niche! VIVA LA BEATKIT!
Grinding your teeth for your Art.  Apr 25, 2000
The raw, "reality art" technique of Wolfe is gritty to say the least. This book makes you really *feel* that grit. You can feel it rubbing against your insides like so much sand caught in your shorts at the beach.

It leaves you raw, red, but still wanting to be "out there" just a few minutes longer.

I suggest you pick this up. If you are in any way a fan of the "brutalis immaculos" movement, you will not be disappointed.

"Uncanny" is an understatement...  Apr 23, 2000
I wish I could give it 6 stars! "Uncanny" is a disputed understatement of the visual encounter found herein. I couldn't believe my eyes--it was like staring into the sun. The candid witicms offset by the terse sense of jaded sarcasm were unnerving. "Panic now" indeed!
why not buy an SUV?  Apr 23, 2000
"Pass the gas 'doc'"


The surgeon was startled. He was a little gassy. Greasy lunch. He's a doctor of sorts, he should know better. Anyhow, the bulk of it seemed not to have much of smell. He was spared that much.

"Oh. I see what you mean."

He lifted the mask to the patient's face. Though he was relieved that his own gasses weren't being detected, he was put off by the man's crassness toward such a touchy subject as medical drugs; especially those one could derive pleasure from.

The patient eased back. As he faded out the ride in the chair was smoothe and stable. He felt secure and safe, far away from harm. Four thousand pounds of glossy painted steel. A form fitting suit of armor. His body was a different shape now, but that didn't bother him.

uncanny  Apr 22, 2000
Refreshingly redundant like double aged French brie. Mr Wolfe certainly deserves two thumbs up for victory.
