Michael Cannel may have written that Design Loves a Depression in Sunday's NY Times, but Murray Moss hardly loved Cannell's article. His response is up at Design Observer. Says Moss:
"Design loves a depression? I can assure you that design, along with painting, sculpture, photography, music, dance, fashion, the culinary arts, architecture, and theatre, loves a depression no more than it loves a war, a flood, or a plague. Michael Cannell's article is regressive and mean-spirited, and it demands a response."
