Digital composition “Commodity: Sugar”

Finally launched campaign for funds to complete painting series, publish book and create traveling exhibit around PANACEA. The series and exhibition will be entitled “Basket Case Study: Jamaica”, the country with which i am most familiar, demonstrating the colonial, exploitive, hierarchical structure made possible by money, and cause of environmental degradation and the plight of the 99%.

Monetarily, Jamaica is a basket case, along with Greece, Spain, Ireland and other countries. The title alludes to the Jamaican expression, “given basket to carry water,” an inherently impossible undertaking. The untenable and inequitable relationships can be replicated in all countries and situations, your own included, where your labor is the declining and expendable commodity.

Destruction of the natural environment and displacement of native peoples would not meet NPV criteria, as opposed to the dollar value and profit motive which drives this devastation.

Recalculating: Fossil fuels

Applying the NPV value matrix to fossil fuels, they’d come out with a declining to negative index, a disincentive to further development and production. Renewable energy, on the other hand, will have a positive index stimulating entrepreneurs in that direction. Remediation and restoration of oil-polluted sites will provide another positive value area of endeavor.
