PoMo

I’ll admit it. I’m a postmodernist. I’m not ashamed. But it’s so hard to really put your finger on a definition. I guess that’s kind of the point…

Here’s a definition I came across today by an ex-colleague of mine who I will dearly miss. I can get behind this.

PoMo: Post Modern  

An adjective that describes something as being endowed with qualities from the school of philosophy, art, music, or literature that follows modernism and is committed to challenging grand narratives, critiquing essentialism, playing with form, celebrating the subjective, and acknowledging the power and primacy of media as a defining human reality.
