Here are a few spread of the book i have been working.
i have also been writing a draft of the possible scenario of what would be the cultural, political, economical and urban conditions after the shift [= the moment when the amount of waste we produce will overcome the production of the new]. It is to be read as a sort of timeline that is to be presented in the book, i imagine it being a sort of chronological evolution. I am now in the process of refining each of this point, perhaps adding some or changing others… it is a first draft. I also searching for ways to illustrate each of these captions, some first image draft are here as well.
-End of belief
-Disruptive condition for the capitalist economic dogmas
-New cultural condition > no purchase / only re-use
-New waste treatment condition
-Necessity to quickly come with a solution for waste collection and disposal. Perhaps the dig of giant pits in city center allowing for a decade of waste filling > images in London, Paris, Berlin.
-New aesthetic condition > use, re-use, re-use again, and again, and again, and …
-No function given to objects anymore [end of the term function as we know it]
-Only the physical outcome of an object/product is consider : no other meaning than its form.
-No new products > people use the pits as free and open supermarket
-Cities constructed on trash / Giant pits as supermarket / no economy (nice images to do…)
