When it comes to having an impact in the broader world it requires having a mind that things a little bit differently, that recognises assumptions and habits. We change the world first by changing ourselves. Security, safety, comfort – we evolved to seek these out. The industrial economy fostered these traits: go to school, go to uni, get a job. Efficiency, productivity, profit being the mantra. The things that you are passionate about relegated to an after hours hobby – if that. But what would it take to disrupt that, smash the status quo, take the dependable future and break it. What would it mean to bring your individuality to the fore – do what you are passionate about, be your own boss, create art. What would be the consequences? That is what we want to explore.
