Stations of the Cost

15 Feb

I must admit that I love the winter Olympics, it’s probably my favourite sporting event. I’ve never spent much time thinking about the implications of hosting it before though. Thanks to Bill, I’ve come across Stations of the Cost which John Santic has produced. It’s a collection of art, photos and poems reflecting on the real cost of hosting the olympic games. The twelve stations help people to recognize that many are suffering as a result of the Olympics as low cost housing disappears, government debt increases, the environment erodes, and the poor are criminalized.
