4 Drones of the Apocalypse (Work, Conform, Obey, Die)

Why should only one country be great? Are we not all

on the same planet, breathing the same air, drinking the

same water, composed of the same components. Have

we as humans moved beyond conquering for resources

for our tribe/clan/country? Should not our technology

be used for all? When do we move beyond false

measures of success? When do we move beyond

harming others and the planet which all known life

resides? Think of what could be achieved away from

those that cling to playing conqueror on the backs of

the masses.

distilled truths

Statement:


Continually shifting paradigms - (thru the manipulation of text and context), Anderson's visual hybrid “Distilled Truths“ combines video and neon signage creating a kinetic billboard which invites the viewer to revisit their own preconceived notions, ideas and attitudes about cultural, political and religious stereotypes.
