Exhibition Review #1 | Soil Culture: Deep Roots at Plymouth University Peninsula Arts | Worth going to?: Yes

“The kinds of art I am not so fond of are somewhat exemplified by the first piece I noticed as you enter the new exhibit Soil Culture: Deep Roots. A map of Britain water coloured with a key indicating how the various colour shadings represented something about the soil there according to some historical science.
[…] Her works form an alternative currency of sorts, the main pieces being the massive, ugly ingots of dirt, that have a double-meaning: they point out how nature is not given the value it should under capitalism, moreover, money and the things it can buy are ephemeral- doomed to entropic annihilation.

[…] All of my possible futures, the options for how to be, burn away the more I become the burger robot, and the less human I feel. Theses futures don’t just disappear like usual, potentials for things that could have been but did not, they disappear into a true void of things that could never be and will never be- I am less free. Yet to resist means to quit, not to resign is the biggest sign of resignation.” … More Personal Thoughts | January 2016 | On the Destruction of my (im)Potentias & Resignation as Resistance

Terrorism, Government & Hypocrisy | Guest Article by writer Dylan Yoki

“The “War on Terror” has only served to create more terrorists. With this endless supply of enemies to combat and a civilian population ever fearful of the next terrorist attack, Western governments have curtailed civil liberties in the name of “national security”.” … More Terrorism, Government & Hypocrisy | Guest Article by writer Dylan Yoki
