Systems

I have been thinking a lot about the systems we live in like capitalism, democracy, even smaller systems like your apartment building or place of work. As I spend time thinking about these things this list of questions has developed:

  • Who designed this system?

  • Who did they design it for?

  • Who does it benefit? Exploit?

  • Who was intentionally left out? Who was unintentionally left out?

  • Where is your information about this system coming from?

  • What assumptions are you making about it?

  • Who, if anyone, does this system silence?

Mostly, I am building a business and want it to be addressing some systemic issues that our society faces today, so as I design the business from the ground up, I am trying to keep these questions in mind.

Have any other questions I should add? Email hello at bekkapalmer dot com!

Three new paintings. I wanted to leave a bit to the imagination, like what is happening underneath that black sea.
