For 50 years, corporate power has been glorified, consumption championed and waste justified. The precarious future before us is lost amid the onslaught of media images. The nature of the earnings that define late capitalism have incidentally raped us of nature itself. While the western world remains entangled in an endless cycle of distraction, the rest struggle to survive. Apathy amongst those who have and the socio-economic limitations that confine those who do not is of primary interest, as is the cultural phenomenology that fuels the structural inequalities within the world we live in, a world now reduced to the bottom line and defined by patterns of peace and disorder, economic stratification and the transnational division of labour The sanctity with which we viewed traditional values is diminishing, as the social landscape becomes an increasingly noisy and fractured space dominated by advertisements. This displacement of values and collective negligence for the future is at the expense of the environment. We produce scads of shiny short-lived products destined to eternally decay in the purgatory of landfills. The decay that we see in physical world through the excess and pollution mirrors our own social and spiritual decay.
