First Adundance Society

Dab Dance Project

Seoul, South Korea

First Abundance Society’ focuses on the fact that preparing for the future doesn’t guarantee a better quality of life. Some experts say that societies of hunters-gatherers were the first truly abundant societies, with short working hours, rare epidemics and a rich, balanced diet.

But not everything stays rosy, and as the boundaries between true and imagined paradise begin to blur, the realities of life and the accompanying work, fears and hopes begin to muddle utopia.
