The Process of Meaning and Worth by Shawn Bush

Issue 71

The essence of human nature instills us with different variations of what makes a person, place or thing meaningful to us at an individual level and to us as a society.  Everyone finds and places significance according to many different variables.  Some place meaning by the age of what is in question, the history and possibly by the sheer amount of it.  The one thing that has a universal meaning and consistently insists on placing a specific value is the monetary system and the currency that is the fundamental part of it.  Money is the thing the fuels our modern society and when the material integrity of something is compromised it suddenly looses value and is no longer desired.  The Process of Meaning and Worth challenges the unwarranted values of the world that surrounds us and explores the concept of money and the influence it has on us.
