How can you shape the future if you’re recommending furniture from the past?

Ongoing interventions intend to interrupt the values of established institutions of government, industry, and culture, and even questioning whether art as the private expression of the individual still had an ethical reason to exist. They took a form of Pop-up ad, a statement suspended on a façade, stuck it on a car and printed on T-shirt, a bookmarker, a speech form balcony, an object on wardrobe, a flower in the toilet, a spam, a hole in the door, a postcard without addressee, a call in the Cyberspace, a stroll on the roof… they rather were a constant rehearsing on how to hold fast to any vision, any optimism in a world moving towards complacency, cultural conformity and corporate control?

the products are sold on the bases of the feelings they evoke. They only come to life where the user activate them. There are times when the products don’t need to communicate anything
not even an aesthetic experience, sometimes it is enough for them just to be there

it is not the technique matter
it is the style
the technique stays the same

What a great view from down here as well…I should take a photo
Can you stand in the foreground?
It would be nice to have someone in the picture for a change, come a bit closer
-Is this OK?
That’s good but don’t smile, look serious
Tilt your head forward a bit, look more serious
Look!
Nice, isn’t it?
- Yes, it’s a good one, is there any chance you can send me a copy?
Sure!
Write your address on a piece of paper then
-I’ll write it on the back of this, how long will it take to get here?
A couple of weeks or so. What are you going to do with it?
-Send it to my girlfriend
Aren’t there any photographers in this city?
- There are, but they do mostly passport photos, it’s nice to have a scenic photo for once.
I’m putting my phone number here as well, just in case…
