Knowledge has been a suspect property for some time. Post-structuralists distrust the provenance of knowledge. Post-modernists reject the sanctity of objective and scientific “truths”. And today’s soothsayers argue for the equivalency of facts and “alternative facts”. What are we to believe and is knowledge as unreliable and illusive as it seams? The artworks below explore how we gather knowledge, why it is subject to error and why the knowledge we ultimately own is uniquely our own.
Meaning, on the other hand, is indefectibly subjective. Our daily semiotic protocols seem routine and uncomplicated until we encounter the strange and unfamiliar. This art explores the ways in which meaning is formed and the impact of unintended consequences on our beliefs.
