Sounds of the Post-apocalyptic Man

2008

 

An installation that attempts to capture the social commentary and personal reflection that takes place within science fiction. Hambleton references the Cyber Punk genre of Science Fiction, creating his vision of a futuristic Dystopia that reflects the conflict and misinterpretation of his childhood while growing up in the suburbs of Windsor. Through the juxtaposition of a series of videos and illustrations, he imagines how a series of cultural references from early 90’s television might be reinterpreted in a post-apocalyptic future and could affect the rebuilding of society. These cultural references have been chosen to represent key points in his childhood mentality, each consecutively mapping out the imagination and misconception of the time.
