Everything fragments due to the cyclical nature of time. Decay is the visual evidence of this fragmentation ― proving that preservation of this is impossible. Post-digital revolution, now comes an inevitable dark-age; an inability to cope, and a rejection of this new un-natural form of communication we have developed. The decline in religious faith and skilled crafts has brought to light the potential damage technology could have on humanity’s overall life satisfaction. Therefore, a nostalgic desire to take a step back to a slower-paced, ‘more simple’ time is evident. With new technologies making possible a form of control and surveillance, a decline in trust and freedom is percolating throughout the collective consciousness.
