...what has changed for me personally, post Snowden, is not an awareness of our new condition, but the knowledge that now almost everybody else knows...something which was clear as day if you kept your eyes open, did a bit of research... it's restful no longer being called a conspiracy theorist...I can make this new work feeling its context may now be accessible to a broader audience, even a mainstream artworld audience, those who took little notice of the early issues of the politics of the net, net art and all that parallel, mostly invisible and often misrepresented art and theoretical history of the 1990s, and are now seeing internet related art as if for the first time in the form of the new market driven and apolitical, 'Post-Internet Art' movement... Dear all, this work is for you, it can be your new pinup, free of charge...click to see larger versions, email me if you want a 300 dpi printable file...'sharing' does not have to mean giving all your personal data to government security agencies via social media for free...
