meet the traders
our traders are assembled and are ready to help blackmarket audiences hustle their way to the top of the post-economic-collapse food chain. meet the people you'll be hustling with: top row l-r: loren kronemyer - "i'd bring a beehive. it produces honey which is good for bartering or preserving things, helps with agriculture and pollination, and i could use the vicious bees to guard my territory or serve as an explanatory model of matriarchal principles." finn o’branagáin - "don't we all wonder who we would become if there weren't any rules?" jacob lehrer - "the world economy has already collapsed, earth is on it’s way out. we have just written that big climate change document in paris which nobody understands yet." chloe flockart - "in the city there are unspoken rules, obvious territories, and everything you need is locked away. the only way you can survive is to either ignore the person who made the lock, or use your charm and personality to get them to open it for you." middle row l-r: ruud hendrikx - "i'd bring a picture of my grandmother to remind me to eat healthy." rachel arianne ogle - " you can never underestimate the importance of good dental hygiene." joe lui - *remains silent.* julia hales - "i’d bring a toothbrush to make me feel better. to help me survive." bottom row l-r: laura boynes - "I will take a balloon so I can blow it up and release if I'm lost or fill it with water and use it as a decoy or scare tactic." sete tele - "i'd bring a frypan: this item can utilised in various ways - as a cooking implement, perhaps a personal shield, armour, a paddle (ping pong or use with canoe), a self defence weapon, a hat, and so on." maja liwszyc - "i want to be involved in the rise of the new system. to witness a (hopefully) better, wiser phoenix rise from the money-loving ashes." paul grabovac - "money will always be paper, but gold will always be gold."
