Consumer society and the zombie apocalypse

When we wake up in the morning and put our feet on the ground, we better have a good reason for getting up. If we don't, it makes no difference whether we stay inside and go back to sleep.

This website is a wake up call. It is also a collection of texts, photos, videos in memory of the events that happened in such deceivingly unremarkable places as Overvecht and Barakaldo, where hundreds of zombies heeded that wake-up call and took to the streets to invade the shopping malls, joining a melancholic revolution without leaders, and sense of direction.
