This book results from delving into the topics of data and consumption and from the exploration of basil.js, a framework for scripting with Adobe InDesign.
The text of Bernhard London from the year 1932 proposes the solution of the economic crisis at that time through the introduction of a law that would force the citizens to hand in their products for destruction after a certain amount of time.
The visual correlation of the text's words with product images from Amazon results in a dialogue between the essay from the thirties with an economic system typical for today - the online shop.
The flood of goods that is proposed by the author is therefore visible as a flood of product images and the imagined system is set into a relationship with today's intensity of consumption and the currently often short lifetime of products.
Through the way of the Images beeing defined by the text, they form a seemingly random accumulation of goods. Those hereby suffer from a loss in value. This is depicting a change of attitude towards products, that would be a precondition for the system demanded by London.
