In this all-clattering age of neoliberalism, it often seems impossible to silence the stresses that encase us.
Jenny Odell – an artist and writer regularly working in digital spaces – has penned ‘a field guide to nothing as an act of political resistance to the attention economy’. Odell takes the reader on a path to gaining clarity in order to attract change.
While at times dense in its discussions, the takeaway is clear: by stepping outside of the social monocultures created by the abundant curation of life experiences, only then can we begin to see the whole ecology in which we reside.
It is here where we can then take the informed, deliberate yet urgent action required to plan for the future.
