Large signage announcing: “STORE CLOSING”, “EVERYTHING MUST GO”, “RETAIL SPACE FOR RENT” is now a common sighting. Perhaps the drying up of retail stores exposes the mirage of fantasies they always were -- the illusions of grandeur they once portrayed evaporating in their financial ruin. Our abandoned shop stands as a relic of these shared spaces -- a tomb of capitalist ills. It is a rumination on the longing for opu- lence, mitigated by the grim dead ends of our material reality and the undeniable waste of our society. We in- dulge in manic aesthetics of materialism run amok, all the while striving for a space of fantasy.
