slow

culture


by Juan Ignacio Maralejo:

“Having said that, most of my friends and I have an austere
ideology,maybe a recurrent longing for nature and a simple lifestyle.
Not exactly hippie-ism, but being aware of the advantages of limitations.
It’s well known that you get a bit more creative when you have to struggle more
...I prefer the vulnerability of trying to do something honest.”



(
less is more)


born in the wake
of Argentina's economic
crisis of 2001.



sound familiar?

Really timely and intriguing. I keep reading about the "slow culture" movement everywhere applied to every facet of living--slow fashion, slow food.

I could market a product called "slow blackberry," and it would be a tiny dayplanner that said on each page, "Things to do soon."

I have suffered the 2001 crisis and others before, as an Argentinian I am very used to crisis.
I do believe that having less you have to be more creative.
I write about deco and fashion in my blog, I love to see beautiful homes but I do not need having everything I see.What I need more is contact with nature, so the 2001 crisis came with an insecurity situation,kidnaps, robberies, every week a family member or a friend was robbed or suffered a express kidnapping, that was the worst part because we can not use public space and we live with fear, at that moments I used to think -Well, at least we ¡are not in Irak.
About having to shop less and cut other things I did not care, I was to used to economy ups and downs.
