Obey as a pseudo-command in my art has always been a form of reverse psychology. My philosophy is actually “question everything”. Conformity is often more unconscious than conscious… an adaptation to structures we may not agree with and a submission to unseen forces of manipulation… unseen because our eyes and minds are not open wide enough. People come up with conspiracy theories like “the Illuminati” to explain the feelings that they are cogs in someone else’s machine, but the deconstruction of power and control requires nothing more than a conscious and diligent examination of how power and influence upon the government accumulate and concentrate under capitalism.
