Twin Paths


32 x 24

With the arrival of social media, we are continuously bombarded with all sorts of information that, in the past, would have filtered and verified but which now appears immediately at hand to inform our every decision. As a result, we actually live in two worlds. The world of truth and a new fake one that has sprung up in recent years.

In Twin Paths, I have used two continuous loops to represent this duality. While these interact with each other, each loop maintains a separate continuous pathway. It serves as a reminder to be continuously on the lookout for fake information. The two worlds of truth and fake interact continuously and can lead us to make bad decisions. Nowadays, more than ever, we can take nothing for granted.
