This Meme’s a Classic!

Digital Composition, 2019

An interconnected series of works: ‘The Future Aweights’ is centred around the omnipresent and oppressive world of digital media and expanding tech. The use of analog art methods simultaneously clash and poke fun at modern digital forms of communication.

Using classical sculpture images, ‘This Meme’s a Classic!’ wants to infiltrate the insta club and inform from the inside, the membership of such media becoming a satirical comment on the oft-inane world of memes, whilst existing and (I hope) being shared as the real deal.

We may think we’re creating a better/more advanced future for ourselves but I’m not sure our little minds (speaking for myself) are going to be able to cope with it all; As the tech advances at what seems an exponential rate, our brains are constantly struggling to keep up.
