CERO9: Cristina Diaz Moreno and Efren Garcia Grinda
Date: Thursday 19 March 2009
Market logic parasites any material, regardless of where it comes from. But as with rats, cockroaches and other gluttonous parasites, all we have to do is put camouflaged doses of poison in the daily food ration. Proposals for an alternative order suggest how things could be otherwise, triggering arguments about whether they belong. A project for an alternative material future – seductively attractive pills that are full of a lethal drug.
