Debt salt & pepper shakers comment on personal economic crises


The state of the world economy has been shaky since the global recession in 2008, leaving many people jobless and many were even forced out of their homes due to mortgage woes. Consumerist as we are, the economic crisis appears to be heightened when we find that we cannot afford the same luxuries that we could when the inflow of money was smoother. To highlight the severity of personal economic meltdown and just how depressing and overwhelming the current economic climate is, designer Sebastian Errazuriz has created the Drowning in Debt Salt and Pepper Shaker Set.

Drowning in Debt Salt and Pepper Shaker Set

The set features an office worker with his work briefcase inside the shaker itself, commenting on the direness of the current global economic climate and how badly it affects the lives of the workers working at the grassroots levels in multinational companies. As the salt and pepper is consumed, the workers emerge from the salt or pepper that symbolize debt or unemployment only to be flooded by it once again when the shakers are refilled.

Drowning in Debt Salt and Pepper Shaker Set

In a way, the Drowning in Debt Salt and Pepper Shaker set makes a dark comment about the nature of debt and the struggle of the average officegoer in our times who tries to break free from the vicious cycle of economic meltdown and debt only to be engulfed by it once again.

    First of all I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before
    writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting
    my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or hints? Thanks!

    That means that not only are you able to report days at a time, which is nice when you find yourself away, but when someone breaks
    in your DVR will catch their face with perfect clarity. ” The simple answer to this problem is “backup,” or copying your important data (whether it be your baby’s first steps or your most recent resume) but there are dozens of ways to get around this.
