OBJECT: DESIRE
What are the origins and purposes of modern obsession?
Today, our desires are fulfilled by a corporate cornucopia—easy abundance for anyone with ready cash. The basic necessities of life are taken for granted, while consumerism creates artificial hungers that evoke, not the sacred but the profane, not connection but profound alienation—from nature, society and self. Psychic wolves yap at our heels amid failing dreams of technological progress. And human yearning feeds on itself, circling endlessly in search of the still center.
