Honey Money: fSM – new money for a new society is a book about culture, the environment, infrastructure, bodily waste and revolution.
Text by Jaeweon Cho; translation and editing by Richard Povall.
“First and foremost, the book and its motivations speak to the core of art.earth’s values: vision, equality, ecological thinking, sharing, co-operation, and remaining open to change. The book also espouses a transdisciplinarity that echoes our approach to everything we do.
The book bids us to re-examine our lives by questioning the utility of one of longest-established infrastructures, and this, surely, is a fundamental tenet of art. Such essential challenges rarely gain traction because of the overwhelming odds stacked against them. Nevertheless, the cogency in the essential argument of this book is striking in its lucidity and logic.
These kinds of challenges to our preconceptions and established structures also represent a meeting place between art-think and science-think. While there have been attempts to blend disciplinary approaches within the Science Walden project — attempts that have not always been successful according to the author — it is the belief that art and science can speak to the same issues and problematics that is striking here.”
