This is great, James. I agree, what a perfect way of seeing post-modernity. I always come back to the idea that post-modernity is the object devoid of context, e.g., the product on the shelf that we can buy, though we know nothing of who made it, where it was made, how it was made, and how it reached us, not to mention the labour relations in the store where we can buy the item.
