Ping and David Henningham create a collage of Fuller’s ideas on energy wealth and survival for all, not just the fittest.
Albert Einstein said of Fuller “young man, you amaze me.” Fuller had not only understood Relativity, but he had described a world where E=mc2 had revolutionised daily life. This is the world we live in today.
Fuller went on to write that economics must be brought back into the service of humanity in line with the revelations of Physics. Out go speculation, credit and hoarding precious things. In come precise accounting, abundance and physical energy. Furthermore, authentic Capitalism can only function if all citizens of earth have a share of the planet’s wealth. The gap between rich and poor is index linked to a chaotic failing world economy. And this was all in print before 1965.
Ping and David cut up various of his texts* and place him in an East London studio complex where a group of frustrated artists are trying to form a trade union. His new glowing tetrahedral body gives him a chance to contribute to the current debate about Automation, Industry and a Universal Basic Income; to address our continued failure to understand the beating Capitalist heart of his vision. Financial security without opportunity is no freedom at all.
