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.
