Accelerating Normality

Subcultures become passe as the outlandish turn to ordinary for expression

Implications - Subcultures are being embraced by the mainstream as a standard expression of style, but this antithetical acceptance is creating a void for the outlandish. As a new form of rebellion, the acceleration of normality into something exaggerated and over the top is seeing the ordinary being claimed as outrageous and subsequently critiquing the evolution of modern style.
