I am interested in the pervasive climate of caution in our nation (and probably other developed nations) The idea that misfortune is simply the result of a lack of proper precaution (this could be partially true, contrasted by a sense of fatalism in less developed countries) has resulted in nation that worries, pads and buffers itself against the tiniest potential threat (whilst ignoring actual danger), proliferating giant passenger cars, airbags, side-impact air curtains, child-seats for nine-year-olds and warning tags and labels on everything. Of course this affects our aesthetic sensibilities.
