Complex trading, based on proprietary knowledge and communicated through a privileged visual language, underpins all aspects of our global economy informing decision making and influencing the most basic human needs: food, shelter, energy, water. This language of money, while hypnotic in its abstraction, color and form, remains indecipherable to the average person who is nevertheless affected by its daily practice. Only a fluent few, the subjects of Hedge and the vast financial systems they represent, lay claim to its power and meaning.
Once the South Bronx, in New York City, was America's most notorious slum – a background of run-down tenements and dirty streets for its gangbangers and street corner hiphoppers. But bit by bit this post-apocalyptic décor has disappeared. Its residents have literally planted the seeds of progress. More than a hundred comunity gardens now thrive in unexpected locations. The South Bronx has become part of the vanguard of the Urban Farming movement, which can make a significant difference for the environment and for the social climate in urban areas.
