ANTHROPOCENE - A DYSTOPIAN LEGACY / PATRIA
Industrial development, free-market models, a focus on economic growth in conjunction with greed and power, fail to support development that is sustainable, which begs for a re-evaluation of our economic and political systems. This project predominantly explores local vistas and the rampant destructive short-sighted measures that favour economic growth at the expense of adequate planning as well as investment in social capital. Dystopia within this context is to an extent hyperbolic but, as in literature, the project could serve as a warning sign, a call that opens the possibility of dialogue on socio-economic practices within the Maltese borderline.
