Why do we build our own unhappiness?


The City as parasitic organism that dwells on people to make them build its streets and houses; But if nobody is happy in the city, who builds them? And for what purpose? The visual and aural onslaught of advertising.Here we are: just prey for the entertainment/consumption-complex.

Kertesz: City as a stage
Atget: People as ghosts haunting the city
Lewis Bush: City as the theatre of capital
Moriyama: City as a libidinal arrangement? Compound? complex?
Nakahira: City as overflow; city as beyond interpretation (or before?)
Lewis Bush: The World(the city) is Ugly/And People Are Sad

Then why do we work on building our own unhappiness?
