Artist Statement:


    Global Direct illuminates the idea of worldwide democracy within the tradition of utopian artistic visions. To illustrate the conceptual work, the artist composed a series of fifteen diagrams of alternative protocols, procedures and policies for actualizing a global participatory democracy. These creative organograms were informed by research on contemporary forms of democracies which the artist assembled and offers as a documentary component of the project. Further, the artist promotes Global Direct as a visionary political movement by producing appealing slogans, visuals and videos with statements by prominent advocates of participatory politics. Ultimately, the artwork is presented as a political philosophy that structures global direct democracy. This occurs through the opportunities offered by distributed network technology for participatory decision-making, transparent accountability and civil awareness.
