Concerned with being constantly updated, with obtaining the latest model of who knows what, with wearing the badge of the modern, informed, up-to-date consumer.

Undermined by ubiquitous messages that insist in reminding us that there’s always something better, that what we have is nor will never be enough, is bound to be old, of the last season or, which is the same but not, of centuries ago, which in consumption is equal to an era.

What if we decide not to be?

What if we decide not to run in pursuit of a future made into a gadget, a SUV or a trendy shirt?

It’s then that we realise we’re forced. That was seemed an option is nothing but a way to mask the fact that the objects themselves force us to discard them.

They have a voice of their own and take command.

The operating system is no longer compatible with the software we need to install, the laptop does not have the required input for the new peripheral, the Ikea table didn’t resist the move, the soles of the shoes we bought last spring have come apart.

All of this thoroughly programmed to support a system that in turn supports us. To keep a job, to support the job of those who support ours, to not break a cycle of purchase-disposal-purchase beyond which we panic just to look.

And while we once again prepare to update, we fill up the trash bin with wasted resources. We dispose of the work of others: work designed to be thrown away. Objects with a programmed expiration date, which serve their only function without errors or delays: to make sure we remember to make our next purchase.

Is this the only way to keep the cycle?

How long will resources be able to support a race without (a) finishing line(s)?

Will we wait until then to imagine alternatives?

brancolina :: la philharmonie in luxembourg

















©brancolina

A selection of my photos from the series ‘La Philharmonie’ in Luxembourg, designed by Christian de Portzamparc. More info: chdeportzamparc.com


“Die mit der Musik verbundene Emotion liegt in der Entdeckung einer anderen Welt, die sich in die Dauer hinein erstreckt, und dem allmählichen Vordringen in diese Welt. Ich begreife den Raum auch als Erscheinung, die sich über die Dauer unserer Bewegung mit ihren Erwartungen, Überraschungen und Verkettungen hinweg erfahren lässt. Ton und Licht füllen und enthüllen diese wunderbare Leere, die sich zwischen den massiven baulichen Formen auftut, Raum und Musik enthüllen sich gegenseitig.” Christian de Portzamparc
