From Shiny Shiny TV:

Remember a couple months back when we told you the fluffy melt in your mouth chocolate was back on the market? It was reintroduced after numerous campaigns on social networking sites started clamouring for the chocolate. Well a couple months later and Wispa has proved so popular that they are bringing it back FULL TIME (or till sales slump).

Yes, from the 6th October you can now stuff your face with as much Wispa as you like, for the price of 45p. I’m not sure if it will remain as popular as it was when there was a limited supply, as when the novelty has gone, will the true fans remain?

This blog is not usually used in the interests of self-promotion, but the content seemed to fit here, this time, so here goes.

Above are two recent works exhibited at a show called City of Ideas at a self-storage warehouse in Galway, Ireland. The show was curated by Human Resources (Ben Roosevelt and Emma Houlihan).

Foreground:

Model for Experiencing Economic Panic/ Excitement

Background:

Landscape of Desires and Manias [Tulipmania, 1640s; South Sea Bubble, 1720; UK Railway Crash, 1830s]

These are experiments very much informed by the research themes in this blog, and the sense of emptiness and excess that pervaded the storage space. I’ve also recently been investigating the ‘Economic Worry Matrix’ and ideas of irrationality and so-called ‘market sentiment’.
