McLuhan


"The function of the artist in correcting the unconscious bias of perception in any given culture
can be betrayed if he [or she] merely repeats the bias of the culture [...] In this sense the role of
art is to create [...] counter-environments that open the doors of perception to people otherwise
numbed..."

Marshal McLuhan and Harley Parker, "The Emperor's New Clothes" in The Vanishing Point: Space
in Poetry and Painting, 1968, p241
