►a'21: Trouble Market _amberPlatform
As part of the workshop, we focus on humanity's current troubles and make them marketable. Come on, start selling your troubles now!
:: ABOUT THIS EVENT ::
Many problems facing humanity today are actually the problems that companies and states (or power centers) generate to protect their economic or political systems, beyond human activities. In the face of this power, many people have somehow acknowledged the problems and lost their belief that things could change, rather than focusing on the problems that they had to focus on, and even let go of those problems. TROUBLE MARKET is a speculative design fiction to draw attention to the troubles of the local society to which people belong; that tries to commodify troubles and sell them with the help of a website, exactly as the system fictionalises. Using the methods the system uses to get people's attention, it invites them to face the troubles they are trying to escape from.
