Diptych loosely inspired by the idea of the ‘Society of the Spectacle’ as formulated in Situationist theory. The culture we are immersed in seems a constant barrage of distractions, designed to keep our minds occupied and our selves from looking at the chaos and power within. We live vicariously, increasingly detached from actual experience - an existence that feigns connection and engagement and trades them for isolation and emptiness. Until we learn to tune out the noise, we are sleepwalking through reality.
