Something about capitalism, liberalism, and consumerism

There is not much that can tell more about a capitalistic/liberal/almost free society, than how we consume - especially how we consume ecstasy pills.

Here is a big selection of the companies, icons, and symbols that tries or ends up changing the way we experience things like fun, love, sex, beauty, justice, reality etc..

Fun today is something else than it was just 20 years ago, the rules of love has changed significantly since the most modern people gave up the religious marriage ethics, and sex today is defiantly different than it was in 1913 maybe because of the porn industry and the inventions of different kinds of contraception.

It's clear that the Middle Ages had some other beauty ideals than we have today if you look at a painting from the period, where you as well could justify actions that today would be seen as inhuman crimes.

I guess the chemical processes that goes on in our and make us feel things are the same, but the settings and the culture within we can express and unfold ourselves change all the time.

I think this is the reason why I find all these symbols on the pills so interesting. You can see a much bigger selection on Just click here.

(Hair Ghost in Landscape, 2005)

What does nature mean to me? Emptiness, infinity, mysterious stuff, an evolutionary past...

I feel that all these things are depicted in Norsker's paintings. It looks a bit like a mixture of a spruce forest and a small town disco...

More of her paintings, drawings, and ceramics right here.
