Outsourcing (fragile)

Rebecca Mason


“This piece incorporates an image of the earth from space (original unedited photo supplied by NASA) with clouds I created using friends’ baby scans. There are words hidden in the sea, on the land and in space. The piece is essentially about how we outsource our fragility over time and across generations and geographies – about how others suffer for some of our luxuries. The piece questions (via the text at the end, the artist’s adaptation of a Francis Bacon quote “for the light to shine so brightly, must the darkness always be present?”) our approach to sharing, and whether others have to suffer for many of us to live a good life. Does someone always have to lose out, can “better” ever mean “better for everyone”? ”
