“Buyerarchy of Needs”

Abraham Maslow would be pretty shocked at what most Americans today consider “needs.” Sarah Lazarovic’s reimagined “buyerarchy of needs” presents a new schematic for consumption, with “buying” becoming a top-level need that should only be considered when all other options (using, borrowing, swapping, thrifting, making) are exhausted.

shot this series for wrk recently after spending lot of off time in the woods this winter.

We are afraid it will never return. We insist on permanency, on duration, on continuity; when the only continuity possible, in life as in love, is in growth, in fluidity - in freedom.

Não é nova esta vontade de invadir espaços aparentemente esquecidos e depois ir polindo polindo polindo até aparecer mais uma zona cheia de cantos giros, de restaurantes cool, de bares que aparecem em qualquer porta, de lojas novas, de quiosques, de arte e de música. Uma mecânica clássica que vai do degradado ao caro, passando pelo sítio do momento e avançando inevitavelmente, para novas conquistas e recuperações.

My life

My life - my personality, my habits, even my speech - is a combination of the books I choose to read, the people I choose to listen to and the thoughts I choose to tolerate in my mind...
