The Story

Our insecurity, mindlessness and convenience are easy prey for commercial, media and societal pressures. It's more than being diverse, green, local or healthy but about staying who we are in an environment that constantly directs us to buy into prepared formulas. The idea is to observe the patterns and biases that tend to make all of our lives more similar each day and explore practical steps to reclaim originality.
