Everything in life is subject to cultural mediation. However, we all exert great control over a small concentration of intensely personal culture – this is what I call,  The Vernacular Self. It is who you are through the expression of your thoughts and things and the network of relationships and connections which feed into your life. The Vernacular Self is innately and inherently creative because its realm of concern is the expression of ones identity within and through the evidence of an individuals unique approach to living. The Vernacular Self is a mono-culture which stakes a claim to ones separate and individual identity within the larger collective culture.
