OMFG! is foremost an investigation into the subjective nature of offensiveness, combined with the sometime related aesthetic of doing it yourself. Various meanings, forms and incidences are offensive to some, but not to others. Why, where and what are these subjectivities and how can we possibly hope for everyone to be happy, all of the time? Offence is often related to the, for want of a better word, 'punk' sense of having the perceived arrogance to simply take things on ourselves. In a world where big culture costs trillions, is cynically target-marketed and controlled by bigger economics, the individual artist deciding she or he can brazenly contribute to culture on their own divisive terms is tantamount to revolution.

DOLPHIN UNICORN ORCHID AWESOME AFGHAN KAFTAN SATURN & URANUS. Dell Stewart. 2009.

You could start a cult with less if you only had charisma.

A collection of flags celebrating some OHMYFUCKINGGOD ubiquitous imagery which treads a line between appalling and awesome.  Meaningful symbols of collective experience and/or a sign of cultural degradation and the descent towards utter inanity.
