Quote of the Day: Maurice Marciano

"You reverse the pyramid, it's the Guess triangle!"
—Maurice Marciano, in The New Yorker

Marciano connects the Guess logo to the all-seeing eye of Masonry, a triangular emblem that has obsessed conspiracy theorists for generations. Dana Goodyear's New Yorker article also quotes Susan Aberth, Bard art historian and curator of the Marciano Art Foundation's installation of Masonic objects. Aberth theorizes that the 1980s sexy jeans logo represents a pubic triangle: "I mean, how could it not?"
