“Exclusive schooling”. This piece represents exclusive schooling. ‘Private’, ‘privileged’, ‘elite’, ‘wealthy’, ‘nobles’, ‘lords of the land’, ‘rulers’, ‘enlightened’, ‘the initiated’, ‘secret societies’, ‘aristocracy’. All of these words denounce a position of power. Throughout the millennia, this has taken many forms, but one form in common has always been education. This is The Power of Knowledge.
“Democratization of schooling”. This piece represents the unprecedented availability to education. Training of all sorts is now just a click away. What is really required is your interest and commitment to the lesson. It all comes down to knowing yourself and being aware of what you want. This is Online Schooling Post Pandemic.
“Beauty and The Beasts”. This piece represents the reality of nature’s wild and untamed aspect. It is fun and games to be a tree-hugging-hippie in Plateau-Mont-Royal, but even such free-spirited, happy-go-lucky people quickly realize they are conditioned city folk as anyone else when stepping into the Canadian Boreal forest for instance. Societal norms, social structures, law and order, and a number of modern utilities and amenities aren’t so bad after all, eh? This is Too Much Nature.
“‘Cyberpunk’ is a euphemism”. This image represents the reality of global warming and humanity’s disconnect from natural rhythms. I do not think there is anything wrong with modern societies and our material pursuits. Politics has always existed, economics has always existed, as well as other things, including war, injustice, and poverty. Today we have the means and the potential not only to pollute the earth, but also to finally bring a balance to most of these historical issues. This is Too Little Nature.
