Sedition and Other Bedtime Stories

2006

 

Laws do not persuade just because they threaten -  Seneca, A.D. 65
The essence of liberty is the rule of law - Robert H. Jackson 1953
“Developed over the last 12 months, these works evolved from a few chance conversations with my young nephew and niece, which they have probably forgotten. I found myself questioning the type of replies I was giving to their questions. In doing so, I started questioning just how much of the mess of the world could be explained to them. I realized that I didn’t know what I was talking about. This inspired me to actually reaad the current Anti-Terrorism legislation and all the submissions presented to the Senate outlining arguments about why this was a horrific change to our laws. It was a hard, boring effort to read and nearly sent me into a coma, but it was important. Out of the realization of what we are allowing to happen in our time, came the images which led to this exhibition.” [Carl Gopalkrishnan 2006]
