shopping for our lives
“Spielecke” (playground area for kids), glitch – 3rd grade, 3026x 2219px, 2013
The original picture was photographed at a shopping mall (Rathaus-Center Pankow) in Berlin. This empty playground area says it all for me: here you can store your kids whilst going shopping, the cold solitude of modern day consumerism, the emptiness of our post-modern world starts to take its toll. Soon it will fill ours heats and minds, leaving a gaping void that cannot be filled with goods any more… So let us shop while we still can.
