    Transcenmentalism

    Transcenmentalism

    In some modern societies, the economy has achieved the status of a living, breathing human being. Often it is afforded greater protection and rights than the communities it is supposed to support. Although all-knowing and all-powerful, the economy still struggles, fails and sometimes, even ‘hurts’. To some, these conditions make it even more holy.

    As our society’s most powerful contemporary deity, don’t we owe it to the economy to not only sacrifice our time, our loyalty and our children’s future, but our very spirit? This guided economic meditation will harness your conscious experience, allowing you to finally become one with the most supreme being of our times.

    The second part of this special feature focuses on two leading local exponents of hypotheticalism – Anna Barclay and Damien Lee. Barclay talks to us about her contentious sculpture, ‘The Role of Sight in the Age of its Metaphysical Reproducibility’, while Lee details his reappropriation of colonial imagery for ‘Untended Meadow’.
