Working on a few quick drawings/paintings hoping to inspire myself
Questioning that the way society is structured has become much like a museum. Experiences seem so pinned down and homogenized.
Joni Mitchel said it best
"Took all the trees, put them in a tree museum
And they charged the people
A dollar and a half just to seem 'em
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you’ve got till it’s gone
Paved paradise, put up a parking lot"
It funny how our ancestors would have more than likely been terrified of tigers and elephants etc. Now we have to protect them and feel sorry for them. Has the spirit of exploration on this planet been used up?
I looking at Religion as a theme as a start to this project because from the previous post. Following the pavements on a daily basis whether you want to or not are aware of it or not is in my mind like a secular religion. Belief, in the way.
Anthropocene is a good key word I'm looking at for this idea. I saw some Telly about concrete having a massive impact on the planet I think part of the Anthropocene
