Sinister Fruitiness

is a late twentieth century style and concept in the art, architecture, and criticism that represents a departure from modernism and has at its heart a general distrust of grand theories and ideologies as well as a problematical relationship with any notion of “art”.

According to http://litmuse.slack.com/files/drlucas/F1Y9X6AGN/gibson_-_the gernsback continuum.pdf “Sinister Fruitiness” was a very great read. This text correlates with postmodernism because many times throughout the read Gibson made sure his protagonist had visions of this future of this “perfect world” he imagined that was designed by architects. He is asked to photograph architecture along the west coast and while doing so he confuses the real world with this world he starts to imagine in his head. He suffered from many breakdowns and decided to ask his friend, who helps individuals who suffer from the same thing as him, for advice on how to cope with dealing with their own continuum. It takes the protagonist to go through many different continuums to realize nothing compares to his actual life.
