Two short entries (txt and illu)

The rise of the hairdresser

In a time where our world is falling apart, our economy, our climate, a displaced humanity, we are told that we need change. And hope.

Hollywood promises us a bittersweet hero saving us from meteors and aliens; poetry tells us that we’ve killed our hero by eating burgers.

Architects have given up. Manifestos are buried with our hero. In our society of nihilism the garbage man seems too heroic, an icon of unreachable purity, too much effort.

We turn to the only honest profession, independent of cheep, globalized labor, and get our hair done.
