'Nothing in the News' by Sideline Collective
Posted on May 10 2017
We invest hours on end staring at our mobile devices; we want to know what's going on, the why and the how. We need to know. But in our perpetual quest to fill every spare minute of our time searching for something meaningful, we learn nothing. We are so busy filling every waking moment with things to watch and do, and learn and listen to, that we have forgotten what it is like to just be. To sit around and think. To switch off and be bored. To daydream.
In a world where we are constantly bombarded with information, seeing this feels so...strange. But that's clearly the point. Can we still disconnect? Can we rediscover what it means to just 'be'? Or has the time of silent reflection left us for good? Let us know your thoughts on the Nothing in the News project by Sideline Collective and click here for more art news.
