Parable of Democracy
An interactive woven tapestry inspired by science fiction writer Octavia Butler. Butler’s image and a quote from ‘,Parable of the Sower’, is sewn into the cotton fibers of the tapestry looking toward an uncertain future meanwhile,a haunting audio composition emits from space, transforming depending on your placement. The chilling composition mixes samples of Octavia Butler interviews on science fiction and the human condition with those of Right-Wing hate speech by Trump, Himmler, Hitler and Richard Spencer. Butlers' writing and ideas forshadowed with uncanny accuracy the current political and social turmoil we face in the United States and globally.
