    Target "democratizes" the design of Doug Johnston

    Old school archinectors know about Doug Johnston's amazing work. We all go way back to his days as a school blogger around these parts. 

    For the last few years Doug (aka @hawktrainer) has been getting lots of eyeballs on his projects—a line of objects that exist somewhere between the edges of sculpture, craft, and function. It seems like Target also had its eyeballs on Doug's work (some of it created with a small team of artisans). Now you can get it for the great low price of... $6.99 (and for doug... zilch!) Oh well, what can I say... Maybe I should have bought Doug's work while I could still sort of afford it. Now he's a legend, thanks to Target! But now I can get the democratic version.

      I love Doug's work. Doug, have you talked to a lawyer?

      Thanks Javier and Paul! Will be speaking with some lawyers tomorrow to see what my options are. I really appreciate your support!

      So, DWR, UO, and now Target. WTF?

      Stridently stating "bullshit!" here in my office.  Doug, I'm so sorry, if you want a letter writing campaign bring it here and we'll send out some flying monkeys to Target!  Damn Target.

About this Blog

A bezoar is a mass of disparate pieces and materials. For this blog, you will find something somewhere between tweet-length posts and tumblelogging; inchoate thoughts; provocations and assorted scraps that don't fit anyplace else; criticisms of a political and geographic variety; ecoaffective ramblings; spatial imaginaries that don't conform. On Twitter: @AlJavieera; 1/3rd of @Demilit; bookmarked content: @AJFavorite.
