“A country’s development and welfare are being evaluated with only one indicator - the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The only way for a company to be successful and rewarded is following only one goal - Profit.
The purpose of the economy to serve people’s welfare is being overshadowed by growth. The chase after this has in fact helped society to overcome many challenges but it has also resulted in the climate crisis, the largest gap between rich and poor that ever existed, and other impasses; and is now more than obsolete. Redefining success and specifying indicators that reflect the real welfare of our system is crucial for shifting the economy away from the chase that fuels the climate crisis and is not serving a long-term vision. That requires zooming out, turning around, and internalising that, where now is only one way, there lie many and better possibilities.
This artwork aims to create a sense of these turnarounds, using metaphors in order to help the growth of attachment towards the greatness of change and possibilities.”
