You Say You Hope to Want a Revolution

What do the words ‘hope’ and ‘revolution’ mean for the contemporary human experience? This installation explores the shifting dynamics of words and how they come to influence the actions and motivations of individuals in an increasingly chaotic world. Personal testimony is mixed with cultural and philosophical understandings of these powerful ideas. The suggestion is that HOPE and REVOLUTION should be viewed as contested media, in which historical pasts and current paradigms are both made and remade in constant interaction with all sorts of new facts and simulations. Complexity and contradiction are used to create a space for resistance, empowered incomprehension.
