Since attention takes time and time costs money, attention can be commercialized. As traditional family units are disintegrating, attention from family is increasingly scarce. Attention Clinic
offers quality time with each member of the family, giving visitors an ordinary experience, be it grandfatherly advice or the everyday argument. Addressing the immaterial dimension of the service economy, Attention Clinic, a homage to the Monty Python Argument Clinic (1978), is the next step after the psychic, image coach and life-style advisor, reduced to its essence: just attention.
