Devastation by men

Commodities involved: the environment is destroyed (trade away) for pleasure and convenience.

It’s a non-monetary trade. The trade is enabled by insufficient environmental regulations. People prioritising personal pleasure and traffic over the environment profit. It’s a contemporary problem and discussion. YOLO – You Only Live On-one-earth

The Human Zoo

Commodities involved: the animals and the hunters and the weapons

Some evil hunters are capturing animals to put into a zoo to make money from people who visit and look at animals in captivity. They are using tranquilizers. The animals decide to fight back and build a human zoo and intercept the hunters, rescue the animals and put the hunters in the zoo. Hunting is wrong. Not all zoos are good. Some have breeding programmes and do conservation work, but some […]

I got a lego set (again)

By | August 26th, 2017|gallery|

Commodities involved: Lego. Greek class.

I go to Greek class every week and get pocket money for it. I always buy Lego with my pocket money. The shop keeper profits from me buying the Lego. But I profit because I get to spend time with my Grandfatehr. It happens every week.

Commodities involved: the standardisation of glassware (in laboratories)

Scientists are making the transition to standardisation. Coming together at a unified research group, using the the same measurements. My grandfather was involved in standardising lab glassware.

Commodities involved: A person

Human trafficking. Criminals are making the money. It felt like it was good to touch an important, serious issue that doesn’t get talked about much in the media. I heard stuff about it. Then I made the gif and when I was looking for the Lego faces to show how the people felt, I started to really think about how it must feel for them.

Differently Smart – the evolution of MoCC Guide Mikayla

By | August 21st, 2017|blog|

“If you took me apart, each bit of me would be a commodity. Each of those things have been made by different people in lots of different places. That’s an awful lot of work isn’t it?” MoCC Guide Mikayla on how she values herself.

The idea of MoCC Guide Mikayla arrived with us in February 2015. A friend of mine had been given a My Friend Cayla doll at a corporate IT event she was working for. ‘I’ve got just the […]

MoCC at the Royal Geographical Society

By | August 20th, 2017|news|

MoCC has been invited to inhabit the Pavilion Gallery at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) this 24-27 August bank holiday. It’s a bit of a different ambience to the former hairdressers we occupied in Exeter last May. But since a commodity is a commodity anywhere you offer it, our range of interactive activities will be just as at home there.

We are really pleased to be able to take up this opportunity which has been enabled by funds from […]
