Event map


Profit | Decay A trophy decomposes, triumphs vanish and the symbol turns into dust. Everything goes back to the estate of calm, switching the energy infused towards production, to the lethargy of recuperation, the acedia of the spoiled and the otium of the wise. The stillness that follows the storm keeps on working as a natural remedy for the anxious explosion of the oversaturated and the intoxicated. Austerity functions as an imposed salting of the earth (of the soil of wealth), stopping the invaders from continuing their duties but dispelling the affected from any chance of improvement: when the ceiling slowly falls down, movement is restricted and torpor is the most profitable path to survival.
