The world is in the middle of a new cultural shift with the realisation of a global society and citizenship becoming a virtual reality, due to the emergence of the social networking and next generation computer technology.
With all societies it brings with it questions of origin, social collectivism and the artefacts (rubbish) that are collected to document and evaluate the human condition.
Tools for the Revolutions looks at theses questions and seeks to address them through cultural duplicity and its effect on the modern human condition.
Drawing out comparisons of how cultural duplicity has impacted in my development as Australian further questioning the role that it plays in the development of my own Global Identity.
Tools for the Revolution draws attention to the invention of the virtual social gatherings meant to expand the human experience which has to a point degraded it, restricting the physical exchange (personal experience) braking it down into new iconological exchanges of likes and dislikes.
Tools for the Revolution takes a metaphoric view at the repositioning of my identity, and contextualises it through contemporary art, drawing out the global being from its virtual world to view static visual media that in its purity only accessible in the first person.
