Last week the Climate Revolution Charter was placed in the World`s End & Conduit Street shops to coincide with the new Conduit St new window display designed by Joe Rush, co founder of the Mutoid Waste company.. Joe has been closely involved with Vivienne & the Climate Revolution since last summer when he was working on the mutated machines to be used in the closing ceremony of the Paralympic games. At the time Joe asked Vivienne if she would be `Boudicca` on his Winter truck. Vivienne, not interested in just an appearance, decided she would do it so long as she could use it to make a political statement, so the idea of unveiling the Climate Revolution banner in the middle of the stadium was developed. Unless you saw the ceremony live you won’t have a chance to see it again as it was immediately edited out & not commented on. However Vivienne then used the banner to open her s/s 13 Red Label show at the Home Office & it has subsequently been used for window displays for both the Miu Miu window in Regents St & now Conduit St -Women`s..
The Climate Revolution Charter (click on the photo to get a high resolution version you can read) establishes the blueprint for the threats facing us & for the action(s) we should take to counter them…..The argument is fundamentally that everything we use & play with in our daily lives is made from a natural product. These products are from the same space that we live in (the Earth), a space that is very sophisticated & very finely tuned to our own biological sustenance & that we are acting at the moment like spoilt, unruly children who rip up the wooden floor in their own home to make a fire in the living room & then pull out all the bricks in order to throw them at their brothers in the next room, meanwhile making no effort to recycle their own waste which is slowly filling up the living space…There won`t be much of a house left soon but unlike a house there is no `somewhere else to go` on planet Earth.
Using this analogy further, the`house` was inherited & no work had to be done to `own` it …The household (economy) has taken no account of this at all in it`s calculations which is why the figures might add up, but there will be no `house` at the end of it.
