Are we at the end of the world, a last gasp of Western civilization, a human race finally confronting its demise? Birth Pangs has no answers but elevates the cacophony of noise and commentary that seems to be most pressing now. Exploring a world where those who no longer generate publicity, good or bad, vanish. A brutal world of unadulterated competition and constant quest for notoriety and attention. Where scalability and growth have become the only measure of value. Leading many who aren’t able to keep up, to believe that somehow…they are interchangeable. An invisible commodity of ever dwindling value in an infinite, endless market. Making this American life, a strange war for existence. Just to “be” becoming the the new frontier for survival.
