In Mark Manson’s counter-intuitive novel The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, the author proposes that ‘Technology has solved economic problems by giving us new psychological problems. The internet has not just open-sourced information; it has also open-sourced insecurity, self-doubt, and shame.’
This forms the basis for the exhibition, Tech-xiety, where three contemporary artists, Tina Douglas, Daniel Gardeazabal and Amaya Iturri, respond to this current paradigm of technology with various mediums reflecting as antidotes to the unspoken crisis.
In fact, the exhibition includes a social media challenge whereby the community is invited on a 5:2 technology diet. Are you willing?
Part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival
