The message is not as important as the need to leave one. In a progressively more digital world that thrives on urging users to create content, this project focuses on this phenomenon by partially distancing itself from the digital era and using a documentary approach to explore the ways in which humans interact with and contribute to the world around them.
Everything Is Made
Why is there a connection between artist and genius? Can the creative process be used to decrease the gap between people and works of art? What are the correlations between Punk Rock and the Internet? The answers to these questions belong to each of the three chapters of this thesis, that work as autonomous parts yet are structured having in account three main technological developments: printing, industrial and digital technology. These developments work as a backdrop in an attempt to articulate a series of concerns that touch upon notions of authorship, myth, technology as well as society’s relationship with a culture where the visual is progressively more dominant.
