Artist Statement:


    The issue of control in human culture permeates every aspect of our existence. While as individuals we seem determined to control everything and everyone around us there is always someone or something asserting its control over us, (government, church, employer, etc). Much of contemporary western control is better symbolized by manipulation than coercion, by computer chips as much as prison bars.

    ‘Under control / In control’ addresses the complexity of this issue by examining it through some of its simplest permutations.
