BLINDFOLDS

BLINDFOLDS

Lui Wolstencroft

My entry is a collage called BLINDFOLDS, it is about morality in our current world economy. I convey the violence and conflict I see in the world in the bottom half; war, televised violence and psychotic behaviour, injustice, excess and greed. Whilst in the upper half I portray a possible antidote, namely, the preservation of nature and kindness. The Dalai Lhama and the buddhas serve as symbols for the pursuit of enlightenment through meditation. 

The white noise screens and the sporadic text seen throughout the bottom half relate to the idea of blindness and distraction. On the contrary, the psychedelic patterns and vibrant colour schemes in the upper half accentuate the spiritual narrative. 

The piece debates the moral binary of human values, how we can be constructive and destructive simultaneously!
