The Gate Post v2.0

The Gate Post v2.0 is a surrealist interpretation of a serious on-going problem. It is also, in part, a social commentary.

 

The sculpture serves as a warning about the real loss and invasion of privacy in the digital era. The real loss and invasion of privacy is being driven by various un-elected fascist organisations. And, it is being implemented by fascist national “governments”.

 

Privacy is now a scarce commodity in the digital world. And it is only going to get worse.

 

The inspiration to make this piece came from many places. It was, however, the adage of; ‘Between you, me and the gate post’, that was the principle inspiration. The Listening Post, one of my earlier pieces, provided some technical assistance. I did actually serve as a maqueta.

 

The sculpture also serves as a cautionary tale. Indeed, the anticipation of the secrecy of things, communicated in confidence, may not always be guaranteed in the modern world.

 

This piece won the Major Sculptural Award at Sculpture On The Edge in Queensland in 2017.

 

And, since The Gate Post v2.0 was made, things have gotten much worse. It’s unlikely that things are going to improve. In fact, my prediction is that we still got a long way to go before we reach the bottom.

And, never forget, you are, undeniably, being lied to, every … single … day … Here’s some truth for you.

I do not use Meta products, for obvious reasons.
