OMFG! is foremost an investigation into the subjective nature of offensiveness,
combined with the sometime related aesthetic of doing it yourself.
Various meanings, forms and incidences are offensive to some, but not to others.
Why, where and what are these subjectivities and how can we possibly hope
for everyone to be happy, all of the time?
Offence is often related to the, for want of a better word, ‘punk’ sense of
having the perceived arrogance to simply take things on ourselves.
In a world where big culture costs trillions, is cynically target-marketed and
controlled by bigger economics, the individual artist deciding she or he can
brazenly contribute to culture on their own divisive terms
is tantamount to revolution.
