EXODUS VI – West Lamma Channel, South China Sea – 2011
Exodus explores the most significant migrations of the early 21st Century. As the ability of humans, goods and services to circumnavigate the planet increases exponentially we are left disconnected from a simple view of our common identity. Indeed, as our economic and geo-political differences intensify the unstoppable movement and expansion of actual and digital assets challenge both the power of the individual in society, the state and corporations to control opinions, actions and environment. Exodus provokes questions concerning the biggest changes in contemporary society through large-scale representations of the key themes that influence globalization and the modern world.
