Business As Usual
Smashed Mirror, Acrylic, Steel
The term Business as Usual describes a continuance of the way things have always been. Whether hung as a sign outside of a shop under refurbishment, or as a reference to our unabated carbon emissions and their effect on climate change, Business as Usual is a faltering cry of normalcy despite all conditions suggesting otherwise.
Here, Dickson has flipped the slogan, mirrored and shattered it, insinuating that we are all, in fact, inside the chaos, behaving as if nothing has changed while trying to ignore the cracks.
