alsiasoiset Strange me. Sometimes I really feel like this and it's hard. I'm old enough now to accept, and that brings up my grief. Self realization is not easy.... #poem #poetry #inward #strange #girl #words #belonging #difficult #alienation #love #Luckyme #photo #photoshop #photography #sepia 4min

Slag Gallery (Brooklyn, booth B3) comments on alienation in contemporary society at VOLTA11. Ben Godward (pictured) opens a functioning “art fair butcher shop”, serving shockingly colorful urethane/pigment works to order, while Tirtzah Bassel and Tim Kent (both Brooklyn-based, via Israel and Canada respectively) express the mundane and isolated through their expressive paintings.

lightenedshadows That's what you are.
Looks shouldn't even matter. It's who you are that counts. How you act to one another. What you say to one another. What you do to make sure that both of you are happy together. That you're just… a bond.
You're beautiful…
So stay beautiful.
Don't let anybody tell you no…

eyeopeninginsta The difference between modern slavery and that of working for a 'liege' in a feudal system is that the chains have become invisible.
In the medieval times there was a liege who would let you live and farm on his lands. A workweek was divided by working 4 days for the liege and 3 days for yourself. By force he would protect himself for any revolts.
But in a capitalistic system (which thrives best by a democratic political system) there came a new definition of labour/work. 'Work' was no longer a term to describe the process of turning some product out of nature into something edible/wearable/applyable/vendible, work became a product itself. The 'hours of labor' to create something became the new measure.This product is what 'employees' needed to bring to a 'labor market'. Here, capitalists (literally those who posesses 'dead' capital, as in; money, machines, factories etc.) gathered and bought labor.
Now, this labor market, just like any other normal market, had it's fluctutions. This caused the price of labor to inflate and devaluate. So when there's a job where 20.000 people apply for, your labor isn't worth much. That's why capitalist divided the labour in as much simplified tasks as possible and created competition.
Everything was justified by a new, seemingly fair and just agreement, social contracts.
This basically meant that you didn't only work for self-sustainability (For which you only needed 10 hours a day), but 6 more hours (16-10, back then 16 hours of work a day wasn't unusual). This surplus became pure profit for the capitalist.
Who made 'new' capital by only providing 'dead' capital. The funny thing is, that the employees don't notice that they are providing and serving this. They create this dead capital (which rules them) by themselves. This process of exploitation is called the mystifying nature of capital. You can compare this to how you must pay interest for loans from the bank.
Not only this process of exploitation, but also the alienation of the laborer from his work is harmful. There are no talents or qualities that individuals need to develop, it's all shallow, simple and mindless labor.
