The Grove

Mike Albo on Los Angeles’s The Grove shopping mall:

The Grove is everything that is horrible and spectacular about our brand-saturated American lives. It’s a living version of every pretentious theory you may have read back in grad school: a facsimile of a space, a scripted zone, a generic city, a vituperative quote by Baudrillard or Deleuze. But it’s also totally great!

This statement perfectly encapsulates my own feelings about The Grove.
