The map explores the interconnections that hide behind a complex network of stakeholders, and how it is beneficial to keep practising for lifestyles to improve but at huge environmental costs. The map itself is constructed as a metaphor, using the trojan horse’s construction, entry and battle as parallels to planned obsolescence in the way it appears is welcomed but eventually unleashes all the problems that kill the value of the product.

This is an attempt to unmask the conspiracy that is planned obsolescence.
