This is a long- term ongoing project exploring malicious
utopian corporate thinking.
.
In Corporatopia success, growth and maximum
profitability  are a few of the most highly valued
qualities. With the absence of any ethical
considerations, I am prospecting and exploiting
possibilities of profit around the theory of
human affected global warming.
.
The project presents a commentary on the
blurring lines between corporate
responsibility and the profit interest
of corporations.
This theme is explored
through a series of photographs,
an exhibit of visual imagery of
aesthetically unified sweatshop
like assembly lines.
And, a lineup of finished
functional artifacts and
products, each of which
are related to this profit
based utopian idea.
.
The fans serve as symbol
for this idea, where a
problem and a solution
has been created all in one
and the same object.
The fundamental purpose of a
fan is to cool the environment,
however, the fans oil based power
source is making the environment
warmer.
.
An assumption that may be made in this
scenario is that as the need for fans increase,
it will simultaneously become warmer.
This in theory, would create an exponential
growing virtuous cycle or cyclic addiction
depending on the perspective from which it is seen,
and which are all a part of my own fictitious corporate
agenda……………………………………………………………………………..
