Adam Dix

- 1967 London -

His work plays on the association that exists between communication technologies and our desperate desires to communicate at all costs.

To support his words, the artist appropriates the ritual imagery whether it be religious, nationalist or from science fiction.
According to Adam Dix, these belief systems which link the past and the present make it possible to define science fiction as a contemporary folklore, afterglow of ritualized veneration. The telephone and the satellite become totems and aggregate the communication flows of the whole of humanity.

Adam Dix opens his work on a period of historic optimism, referring to the future imagined by our predecessors. Its display of colors links the subject of contemporary technology to its origins in the 1950s. It invites us to question the past and present forms of "social networking" within a community.
