Statement

"Grand Opening" of "Closing Down"

We are living in a gap between economy and economics. Economy is a stage where various economics are performed to champion the winners of the global competition. In the marginalized economy, small industries die young or are merged into financial industry with enigmatic and swift transaction. Streets are filled with grand openings selling ropy stocks collected from bankrupt shops. Lifecycle of retail’s got shrunk to that of a mayfly.

As Debord described us as spectators of own culture, we are spectating our economy as huge fiction. As a result, economic realism has gone neglected when it is boring. The best way to have reality check is to poke yourself: the best way to do so on the economy is to disturb economy with jokes and experiments.
