ryan shelley perched on the collaborative’s left side, his scrawny screeches matching the volume of the strobe light persona. lancaster county (pa) spat out this renegade design punk who hijacked thesis as a
year-long prophetic moment.
ras collected mediums the way serial killers collect mementos, building a cabinet of curiosities to match the niagara infusion of design philosophy and arts theory. it’s a performer! it’s a photographer! it’s a printmaker! he wants his name tag to read “teacher” with his butt glued squarely in the idea world while building activist tendrils as elucidations of his silmarillion. pessimistic idealism. a world. a metaphor. design post-print is designers as writers and artists and thinkers. big, bigger, epic. an epic as a metaphor of digital versus physical in collision. writing as process as piece as writing as design.
ras took a vow of volume and promptly set out to force presentness at the point of a speargun. angelina jolie has her children;
ras adopted all the rejected offspring of the cardboard and missile coupling as further democratic evidence of design intervention. world creation from idea collision via medium combustion for design perpetuity as fine art. the web is dead. pessimistic idealism: when you eat lunch alone in the high school cafeteria, you’re manifestering and begin wondering how dasani markets to bhopal’s chemopathogen parted lips. if you’re not censored, try harder. louder. see

ras throw firefuckballs. halfway through his thesis year,
re:miss. and wrote
cowboy. and made it into a political religious tract. he wrote an epic screenprinted
comic and tagged it as a
cornerbook. he’ll rockstand on your street corner and hand you a
cardboard brick. see
ras fix. find the diverticulum and proceed forward with a large pointy stick.
ras performed surgery on a remix of
anne boleyn as a hooker, excavating her from cardboard.
ras intends to save the world, then get the hell out.
