Put’n On The Happy Face

The happy face. That iconic symbol Walmart adopted to symbolize economic satisfaction on demand, is but an abstraction.

It’s a put on.

Always the lowest prices is at the expense of demand destruction. Whenever I see the Happy Face all I can really see is the picture of The Scream, an abstraction of objective reality, actualizing what it is by representing what it really isn’t.

Out of the abstraction emerges a new identity.
