Moteur Synchrone_edited.jpg

Moteur Synchrone (Belgium) by Jamie Lee

Imagine a world where the simplest of pleasures are not longer part of our freedom. From living to maintain the materials that mainstream culture has inflicted on our wants and needs, to the complete extinction of the human ability for critical thinking. Leading to the disconnection humans have with nature and the eventual stripping away of humanity all for the growth of the industrial complex. Humans become ponds of a system. A system that is no longer working for humans, but humans working for the system.

Circle (United States) by Phillip Kaminiak

"Circle" is an analogy between the modern human being, living in mass cities, and the phenomenon of the circle of death - observed in nature with ants who are separated from the main foraging party and lose the pheromone track. They begin to follow one another, forming a continuously rotating circle, commonly known as a "death spiral" because the ants might eventually die of exhaustion.
