the doing: a nativity scene for karen

in response to karens concerns around myths constructed through fake news, the rebels created an alternative nativity scene diorama, which will be sent out as pvi’s xmas cards for dec 2020.

the submission:

what overwhelms you?

“The ease today with modern technologies that people are being dumbed down and how quickly and easily without thought people are following directives.”

why?

“I am watching stupidity drive a percentage of the population that is being spread easier than a virus across social media. People sre swallowing u p fake news and misinformation much like people have been doing for centuries with religion, but much easier in today’s world. Freely giving up control, sane thought and now i feel like its inciting violence-the lunatics have taken over the asylum.”

karen, 1.10.20.

the thinking:

 what is the idea we are moving forward with?

 modern technology – misinformation and fake news – spread of stupidity –been given orders and violence that it incites 

how can we do it?

 trojan horse for critical thinking

 telsra

‘it’s what brings us together that sets us apart’
‘it’s how we connect’

where does it need to take place? 

online & in print 

are there any legal implications to the activity? 

parody?
