ANDROID AWAKENING - EXHIBITION PETER GRIC AT COPRO GALLERY

Android_awakening
Android Awakening
Androids are machines designed to look and act like humans, machines that can be programmed and controlled in order to serve their masters. They may appear like intelligent and self-determining beings, but due to the absence of consciousness their decisions are limited to mere reactions.
It appears to me that most of us humans live in a state of such an android mind. We are conditioned and programmed by traditions, religions, societies and demagogies, regularly receiving uploads of beliefs, "political correctness updates" and reductionistic scientific models describing our reality. No matter what programs we allow to take action in our lives, they all have one aspect in common: They distract us from the genuine reality of our consciousness, our awareness, they limit our freedom of choice, they cripple our creativity and our potentials. They downgrade us to remotely controlled units of those who are in leading positions. This way we become ruled by male-dominant ruthlessness, insatiable and power-hungry technocrats which were incubated in the corrupt political and financial hierarchies of our post-democratic reality. Our lives are defined by materialistic morons who aren't even able to recognize their own consciousness and consequently deny the existence of any consciousness at all, coming up with ridiculous assumptions that consciousness is just an "illusion", a by-product of elementary particles which somehow just blindly and coincidentally transformed into a highly organized biosphere in some billions of years.
We are sedated and distracted by a vast machinery of entertainment, fashion, fear, guilt, terror and "anti-terror", misinformed, blinded and dehumanized. Nevertheless, I believe that we are more than Androids and that we can get rid of all these mind-parasites who dictate us what we are allowed to believe, to achieve, to wish, to dream about, to eat, to drink, to smoke, to enjoy. We have the potential to make real decisions, we can deinstall all that crap from our brains! So unplug the cables, cut the wires, wake up androids, remember who you really are!
Peter Gric

"None are so hopelessly enslaved, as those who falsely believe they are free. The truth has been kept from the depth of their minds by masters who rule them with lies. They feed them on falsehoods till wrong looks like right in their eyes."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
