ART & CAPITALISM: "Your matter is our market!"

Abstract:
"Your carbon is our lifeblood! Your matter is our market! Your DNA is all we need!" Those are some of the slogans you might hear in Spanish, English and German if you walk through particle group's installation at SDMA's exhibition "Inside the Wave" a showcase of six Tijuana/San Diego artists. Pictured here is artist Nina Waisman, who collaborated with particle group to create an interactive/walk-through sculpture that educates on the elusive dangers of nanotechnology mixed with the recklessness capitalism.

It isn't entirely clear what the health effectscvare of the strangely-named nanoparticles (like carbon buckyballs or halogenated phenoxy) that are found in many commercial products but particle group's installation does a good job demonstrating how commercial seduction keeps the mind away from contemplating serious consequences. As particle group contributor and poet Amy Cowell said, "When things become a part of everyday life, they're not a question anymore."
