Needful things (2010)
This project was inspired by a Stephen King novel “Needful things”
Things in modern world became a religion, relationships with things substitute relationships with people. Our grandfathers and grand-mothers listen to radio or watch TV, where tender voices of anchor-persons tell them about new “miracle“ things. These things are said to save from senium, illnesses, they can bring back their health, youth and beauty. Elderly people spend their last money on new “gadgets”. Even if one particular thing does not help, people still believe that the next one they buy definitely will.Can a thing make somebody happy and why it means so much in the modern culture? Maybe it is because everybody needs somebody or something to love, everybody wants to believe?
That is a topic of our project in development «Needful things».
