The Social Contract - in progress
In an investigative process, I plan to work with my Ideas of how the world would work without Social contracts.
In a sense Social contracts were put in place to limit animalistic behavior and stop people acting out every desire regardless of its impact on others.
Through paintings and drawings using Animal imagery and specific reference to a diverse range of situations I will comment on how People would act If social contracts didn’t exist, how we are just animals and our sophistication is a result of the boundaries that we have grown up understanding as absolute.
My work will be particularly focusing on high society and tradition, the type of situations in which certain etiquette is required to fit in. Introducing animals into these particular situations we can begin to understand the impact of social contracts on the Human race.
More work is on the way!
