In response to the increasingly virulent anti foreigner rhetoric in the UK and Europe, I use the traditional racist trope "They are everywhere" (Ils sont partout"). Using "We" instead of "They" reverses the power dynamic. By embracing a perverted version of this slogan, foreigners proudly assert that they are here to stay and won't apologise for existing. A Daily Mail nightmare.
Experimentation in illustration inspired by Soviet Constructivism, the Bauhaus movement and the Situationists.
In a world where surveillance and control have become a battleground between governments and their own citizens, whom we watch and who watches us is a key battleground. Yet now we happily broadcast and watch, often at the same time, both watchers and watched, in an endless feedback loop. The watcher and watched, like Janus, part of the same persona. A Kafkaesque dystopia meeting the Schrödinger principle. Pick your side?
