End of term submission has again pushed not just my lateral thinking -but also the complete process through to hanging and consumption. I’m pretty sure I’m not chasing an ideology of what the art world wants to see, nor shortcomings of this next decade, rather what I see and a lifetime of indifference to a constructed existence void of morality. Not that it matters though, as we are no more than perceptions and forced western ideologies, free to think and feel - constructed or independent. It’s all the same.
One aspect of recent studies that really stands tall is that humanity and the planet represented through screens is entertainment, and not truth. Go look for yourself at the world with your big loving hearts and souls at the wonder, and also an utter disregard for each other and this precious planet. Over time the utter chaos calms because the reality is so hurtful it realigns ones own morality. Create your own ideology. Once calmer you see how society is now no more than fear and anxiety manifested as anger and darkness. This is actually the ideology... a constant state of conflict internally.
Thankfully, love and empathy is the last act of defiance, and becomes as natural as walking when ones mind is not full of status, hate, empty promises and exploitation. Act on these feelings in the physical world and notice people around you. Notice how being online amongst the constant constructed bombardment of perceptions promising the ideology you crave, makes you feel. Note how ‘seeing people’ in the real world matters and sharing your time with others free of agendas makes a community.
Thanks for being part of this stage of my life. Being part of now. I’m very grateful. Much love.
