An intimate dialogue at a wedding; the confessions of a young banker; hitchhikers at the gas station; a scene from an Antonioni film; a description of a Hillary Clinton clip on Youtube; Twitter feeds from UK's prime minister. The fragmented spoken narratives and multiple projections in Disobedient Children form an abstract landscape which posits the need for a new social imagination. How can identities be produced differently? How to rupture commonly held ideologies and patterns of thinking in an increasingly neoliberal society? The visual language of the work—the 3D generated grids and patterns, the use of digital glitches—can be understood as a stand in for an unknown future, something which cannot be seen but the shape of which can already be discerned.
