FOOL’S GOLD

Fool’s Gold (developed in Sydney) is part of a bigger context of discovering different Emotional Seasons in Society and diverse cities/urban places. We generally address issues about identity and belonging arising from globalisation and human existence in a cultural diverse society. What do we expect from our surroundings, from life in general? How much does materialism matter in diverse societies? How do identity and belonging reflect our true being away from materialism and mass consumption? How strong are we influenced by the materialistic world we live in? How does it feel to live in a foreign (cultural) living environment and how does this affect us personally? Which layers of reality do we create and inhabit?
