Barriers; Physical and Non-Physical

MEDIA: Creating an invisible barrier, testing the human condition.

 We began to explore the idea of barriers through our workshop with Tessa lynch. We decided to focus on the human condition and the futility of barriers, both physical and non-physical. We staged a photo shoot in the middle of Sauchiehall street to see how many people would obey the non-physical barrier. We looked at the act of graffiti and how those artists seek out barriers to break in order to create. From here, we began to develop a satirical instruction manual on “how to break barriers”. This manual relates to breaking visible, physical barriers and invisible, non-physical barriers; This represents the futility of barriers and further highlights the absurdity of human conditioning. The overall theme focuses on the human condition and absurdity in the Anthropocene.
