My essay 'Welcome to the Crapularity - Design as a Problem':

"Both types of design-production, Apple’s and Aputure’s, end up in various crapular economic feedback loops. These feedback loops include GAS [Gear Aquisition Syndrome] consumption, bottom-up globalization such as the multi-storey specialist electronics shopping centers in Shenzhen and Guangzhou that serve African traders who export the goods to their home countries, the global economy of AliExpress consumption, their links to the human/non-human zombie armies of shadow banking, fintechs and crypto currency mining, resulting in whole batteries of mutually interwoven, meta- and super-wicked problems from financial system bubbles to post-democratic politics and environmental collapse.'"
