“The human does not see what for a long time now has already arrived and even is occurring, and for which the atomic bomb and its explosion are merely the latest emission, not to speak of the hydrogen bomb, whose detonation, thought in its broadest possibility, could be enough to wipe out all life on earth.”
Three Humans? is a show by three Artists studying on MA Contemporary Photography; Practices and Philosophies at Central Saint Martins. Given that they have worked so closely over a two-year period, insights and influences between one another are inevitable on such an intense course. However, each has a distinctive style, which they have developed and protected, keeping individual integrity, producing work that at times is provocative, questioning and thought-provoking. During the period in which we now live, human activity has been the dominant influence on climate and the environment. Humans have become a major force of nature in this Anthropocene epoch, struggling to understand our position in the word, believing we know better than nature. As a society, we have insights and understanding yet we repeat the same mistakes. Madness is repeating the same mistakes over and over expecting different results. This is mankind’s neurosis.
