In many aspects, the progress of our time is an underwhelming echo of the groundbreaking inventions and departures that marked the past two centuries. Specialization, compartmentalization, access, mobility, and leverage – generated and sold by the consumerist culture – arguably minimize and numb our sense of complexity, uncertainty, ambiguity and, as a result, responsibility. Quite contrary to the propagated myths, our environments tend to be repetitive and reductive.
