The Observer is about a child that’s being placed on a whole set of consumer oriented designer type chairs. And these chairs, they all come from IKEA, and they’re sort of pseudo designed pieces. And they’re leaning over, and they’re just about to topple, and he’s sort of perched in a precarious way right at the top, but he doesn’t seem perturbed at all. He’s kind of quite happy up there, and just in the same way that our kids are quite happy drowning in Lego, and similar objects. They really are quite okay, but I think eventually they’re going to grow up and say to us — they’re going to say “How could you have wasted all of these resources in such a mindless way?”1 And they will be the judge of us.
