All homes in the world are interconnected through an electrical grid. This earthed system makes our appliances work: turning on and off, batteries charging, electrical shutters closing, alarms and microwaves beeping, shavers buzzing, lights flickering, air conditioners whooshing, refrigerators gurgling. The wellbeing we enjoy comes into question whenever we notice an unusual act, an intervention such as a wallpaper print that simulates an open space, used as a mere decoration of a closed one. In these eclectic moments, it appears to us that humanity, more than ever, needs earthing.
