The collection of works begins with a consideration of the term 'Exoticism'. I have witnessed the 'Great White Saviour' syndrome many times. Saving the Exotic princess from the uncivilised savages. I've also seen the reality of this when the social personality falls.
This Exoticism also spreads to cultural forms. There's a Yoga center next to the offie and the bookie shop on every high street parade, charging astronomical prices for fusion variations, which drift far from the point of the activity.
I would say that I too, am guilty of forms of Exoticism. Trying to find resonance to the otherness I feel, I really respond to East Asian literature, Graphic Novels, Animie, and Product Design. It has the norm of spiritual and technological realms intwined in its outlook, which I share.
