Daily Soaps

Daily Soaps is a piece of fiction. Or maybe a blueprint for a revolution. There is a need for new social contracts. Or just a revival of fossilized values. A social, professional, and architectural hyper-link is drawn to establish new social contracts–collective living. Privacy is overrated and if “everyone knows everyone”, there will be nothing to hide. Sharing is efficient and instead of building replicas of domestic readymades, resources, and artifacts can be collated to have lesser items and eventually threaten the capitalist systems. This hyperlink socialism establishes a 1/16th downsized open sandwich, or smorgas. Everyone sits around the table, talks, laughs, and eats. Everything is public and only self-hygiene, sleep and sexual life is considered worthy of privacy. The focus remains centre stage–the common space. It brings back, rather, follows the trending work-live spatial mutations, emancipating domestic spaces from isolation and degeneration.
