Austerity (Pure Economic Logic)
“Austerity” is a personal reflection on today’s culture and how the practice of corporate efficiency has colonized the personal sphere. We live in a time of ever intensifying austerity and this debilitating practice is transforming all aspects of life.
“Degradation” is an expression of an environment that is completely neglected. Without attention and upkeep structures of all sizes begin to deteriorate. Structural organization weakens and the environment changes in unpredictable ways.
As public institutions are hijacked and forced to conform to corporate and business like strategies, questions should arise concerning the value of public and social well being vs economic profit.
