What is real and what is an image? We live in a world often confusing, mediated by images dictating our truths and reality. This treachery that is the control and the colossal amounts of waste generated by us lies behind the capitalist image. ‘a dead mall’s fantasy’ is an excavation of the realities of a post-consumption realm and turns the metaphor of the mall upside-down. The shopping mall that was once envisaged as a space of performance and glam, celebrates its own death with the aftermath of our consumerist lifestyles. The intervention attempts to become a cog in the machine, as infrastructure for the city. The dead mall is turned into a recycling facility and a data center, an architectural subversion that provokes a question about our consumerist lifestyles. The thesis isn’t a case of a distant dystopia nor an imagination of a neo-mall, it is only a mere reflection of society. A Post-Anthropocene of the early 21st century consumerism – where products that once left the atrium come back to be recycled and the bodies once gratified in the cold colorful aisles, disintegrate into the web.
