All That Glitters... | Adam Birkan


Economic disparity is sometimes subtle rather than blatant. It is quiet and insidious. It doesn’t always represent itself in a clear and concise manner. Sometimes the disparity is woven into the very fabric of a culture. The aesthetics of culture are slowly conditioning us to accept disparity as the norm. It’s not just the poor versus the wealthy. It is a war between color, texture, and design. Each of these elements has symbols, and each of these symbols change meaning as they are perceived by the various groups of the social strata. This project is set in Asia, my home for now. It is an attempt define and explore economic disparity with the opinion that it has become institutionalized. But the idea goes beyond this region, it is global, and the definition of disparity is nefarious. (incl. Bangkok, Hong Kong, Singapore)
