Control is the lie

The cult of optimism and the way he turned to catastrophe.


We live with the deep but dangerous conviction that we can always improve and exert control both ourselves that everything that is around us. But this blind and presumptuous faith continues to cause major imbalances. Of the Fukushima disaster to the global financial crisis, evidences are abundantes to demonstrate our limits to create a perfect system, without risks or failures.

From an individual perspective, a continuous bombardment of images and informations show us the way to take in order to become better citizens, better workers, better parents, better friends or better lovers.

Globally, science, business and technology experiment with new methods and tools to control, alter and repair the complex nature of the world around us.
Is there a potential human limit ?
