calling all crits

May I make a request? If you're reviewing a project (or completing one, for that matter), and a complex and tortured form/schema/representation is justified solely through talk of "liminal spaces," "seen/being seen" or any kind of celebration of complex social/antisocial interaction, mediated and intensified by the complexity of said form/schema/representation, ask them what their project does that the LA Farmer's Market/Grove Shopping Center does not do for profit every day. Spending a few hours suspended in froth can be enjoyable, but if you're really going to talk about something it should probably be better anchored lest it blow away or melt in the midst of conversation.
