PHILOSOPHER


The Dismal Science

In “Philosophers”, I examine the loss of connection to nature in our modern, technically driven world. A longing for nature, as a fixed reference point and an intact romantic worldview in which man and nature are in harmony, is facing an accelerating demise in our fully mechanized/digitized age. Art’s role changes in a world suffused with generated images. It is imperative to reflect on what are often highly sensitively charged worlds of images, the ways they are represented. In these rapidly changing times, modern life has become far-removed from anything resembling authenticity or truth. The relationships between nature and technology, language and body, body and space, have changed significantly.
