Charcoal on paper | 2019 | Music: Jovan Todorović
The techno-capitalist gold rush that has emerged and spread throughout the world, targets and manipulates our brain circuitry for profit, political gain, and power. Screens and the algorithms that live behind them have transformed our sleep patterns, how we experience love, communicate with each other, identify ourselves, make decisions, and think. Our acquiescence to silicon valleys data-mining has had a profound effect on the hard wiring of the human brain. For the past year these drawings have been an acknowledgment of my own addiction to the luxuries provided by tech, and the realization that these benefits come at a great cost to all of us, and most of all, our autonomy as individual beings.
