AGE OF ENTITLEMENT
In this new Age of Entitlement, a millennial mindset spreads like ivy into the phones, streams and dreams of the connected world. Attitude shifts to an open-hearted tolerance of a multiverse system presenting infinite perspectives, truths and possibilities.
Elysian landscapes as new new age psychedelic visions. A trippy throw back to the flower powered hippie movement when people sought and presented their authentic selves. Joyous in reverie and emboldened by a self-delusion that dreams the life. Ls528 Flowerheads feature as joyous happy dancers and dreamers in an acid high-frequency colour popping panorama for Shoreditch's early spring streets.
Presented in February 2019, as a giant street-art print with AR feature to bring the digital landscape to life and into a hyper reality.
Since creating this artwork I've continued to observe a spirit of entitlement. For many it went into overdrive during the pandemic - just check the vloggers, and influencers on the socials and see how they thrive from living their best lives and not waiting for permission.
In February 21 there was a turbo boost as I joined Clubhouse. I found myself particularly drawn to the NFTs.tips room where individuals from all corners of the globe come together to ask and answer questions around the subject of art and NFTs. Every question is valid, moderators and audience alike share their experience and knowledge with an open-hearted generosity I've never seen before. Nobody is pulling the strings but the conversation flows. I adore seeing this decentralised culture and community emerge.
I'm 100% digital. I don't want people to print my work. I want it on the blockchain.
When the question arose at to what my genesis piece should be - I didn't feel I had any choice but to present Age of Entitlement because it's a culture I believe in and celebrate. This is a positive for society and art and I've never wanted more to be part of a community. At the same time, I hope this will add value to the giant poster printed for the original AR show now in the @outsidethezone collection. Thanks Trix.
