Around the world a new wave of colonialism is taking place. Countries are being entered, the people suppressed, the resources looted, and the identity, culture and uniqueness being stripped away. This assessment piece looked at ways to take the issue head on with special interest paid to the unfolding situation in Greece and the rest of Europe. By adopting an existential definition of nothingness, and evoking a powerful and defiant chapter of Greek history, a presentation of two symbols was made with the intent to symbolically pause the money cycle that is tearing these countries apart whilst also giving a voice back to those affected.
