We meet at the central point of the new temples of today, the shopping
malls at the escalator, which mimics a sense of flow and
forces us to a certain speed, sweeping the willing amongst us into
a bubble of rapidity and sounds.
We have arranged ourselves in consumer society; we made ourselves
comfortable with the cushions of superfluity. Though we believe
greed to be great, our real aim is excess and voracity. While, out
there, resources are diminishing and more and more are excluded,
we are searching our luck in the temples of consumer society.
Art started being offered here long ago, with the usual margins,
vulgarly precarious; nevertheless, we keep on floating and strolling,
enjoy a Latte Macchiato in the artificial light whilst the sun is
experimenting with different shades of grey in the glasshouses fog.
Inside, in the meantime, a new species has been developed: the cave
men - ready to survive, fast food, (s)low motion.
