a trend analysis

An acute inflection point in our collective narrative, 2020 may have been marked by broad despair but for many it was the culmination of a decade of arduous progress and waning optimism. Perhaps excessively evident, numerous parallels can be drawn between the zeitgeist of this moment and the enduring Myth of Sisyphus. From the spectre of ecological collapse to the degradation of our body politic to the diminishing economic opportunities facing young and emerging generations of workers, the struggle is not only real, but—pessimistically or otherwise—it is a near ubiquitous fate to which we have become resigned.
