Jan Rosseel, Prosthetics of fear
Prosthetics of Fear visualises the high costs of living in a fear-ridden environment where realism has become rarer than doors without deadbolts. Since 9/11, monumental sums of money are spent on unnecessary programs and products that will allegedly alleviate our worries as our time and energy are dragged into a perpetual state of fear. All the while we are distracted from the true issues of today; climate change, inequality, human rights violations, mass species extinction, water scarcity, mental health and poverty amongst countless others. We have become apathetic to the real suffering in the world, whilst consuming the anxiety we are instructed to eat.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.
