“Dave Hickey discusses differences between taste and desire in Pirates and Farmers: Essays on Taste:
Warhol began with his soup-can paintings and his “Flavored Marilyns”—trademark desires produced in individual flavors to suit your taste . . . But we all have personal kinks, so Andy painted fifty-two Campbell soup-can paintings, each slightly different in its configuration and one painting for every flavor of soup: Cheese, Mushroom, Tomato, Clam Chowder, Bean and Bacon, etc.
He painted about a dozen Flavored Marilyns—or Lifesaver Marilyns, as they were called at the Factory, since the candy provided the colors. All the Marilyns are identical in these paintings, but the backgrounds come in lime, orange, lemon, strawberry, pineapple, and licorice, to suit your taste while fulfilling your desires.
In several exercises aimed at borrowing representational techniques from Andy Warhol’s Flavored Marilyns and soup-can paintings, each participant in the workshop was asked to stake out an architectural conviction in regards to the atrium typology. By working on the problem of seriality in architecture, this atria project is extremely formal, bright, and optimistic.”
