ABOUT THE ART
"This piece 'Freedom For Humanity' is a symbol of the attitude we should be taking when it comes to our rights as human beings. It’s a play on George Orwell’s 'Newspeak' from his novel 1984 where he combines and condenses words to create a new language. Language is so important for understanding what it means to truly be free, yet it is constantly being eroded, redefined, and replaced to suit the corporations and superficial consumer pop-culture trends for profit.
People need translation out of our current language based on greed towards a more meaningful and insightful existence, using language based on our humanity, sharing, and cooperation. I want to inspire critical thought on the implementation of 'Newspeak' in our current Orwellian, media-blitzed reality."
