Visual art and music has always been more popular modes of expression than anything high literary - that's always been confined to a certain subset of people. Design and music are more immediate and pleasing than, say, reading a 150 page novella on mystery and imagination - it takes more time to create it well and to consume it correctly. What's more deeply gratifying is up to each person, but I don't think there's too much new under the sun about the human experience.

Personally I like design, but the ultimate end of the ID kids from Pratt (whether in Tokyo, Berlin, San Fran, or NYC), is to sell crummy plastic Panton-style chairs out of boutiques to those boring, khacki-wearers you criticize. I wish I could live in your world.
