11 luxury

critique: We have reached a point where luxury negates itself and now becomes that of the absurd. It has lost its true essence as it becomes further diluted by its desire to become a commodity like any other, produced en-masse and sold for profit.

reinterpret: The task is to reinterpret luxury as something more than stuff, where there is a belief in the existence of a spiritual comfort that transcends that which is may be experienced through the acquisition of material goods.

propose: The conclusion of this manifests itself at nine sites scattered throughout the Scotrail Railway network where an intervention is proposed at a particular station which refers directly to a personal experience of that site. These luxury interventions include the journey itself, the sunsetting over Lochalsh and listening to the sea crash of the Mallaig coastline.
