barque of the lost daze
This winter ,I avoided the cold weather, cold and damp of my workshop and worked instead from the warmth and shelter of my garden room.
Limited space has meant that I have had to work on a small scale, but I have been constructing more sculptures from similar objects rescued from the rapidly accumulating pile of redundant domestic electrical components that clutter our lives.
The barque of the lost daze
The so called “digital age” of “smart devices” designed to assist our lives ,
also seems increasingly to order and even control us?
There are clever machines for every task ,answers for every question,instant information for all enquiries.
Information however,is not necessarily knowledge, and I.T does not supply wisdom.
Traditional beliefs and philosophies are falling like dominoes ,succumbing to the “authority” of artificial intelligence,
misinformation and “fake news” Belief systems, consumerism politics ,democracy ,and faiths are being overtaken by the
omnipotent ,but very convenient machines, that some fear may soon render humans redundant ?
