Dinosaurs Must Fall

  c. Michael St.Mark 2015

Arrangement; with copy of real media‘s ‘ Daily Mail ‘ from their Anti Daily Mail week, 13th-20th March 2015
with reclining plastic model T. Rex sporting names of various popular corporate interest  press & TV MSM
news channels

* The slogan, Dinosaurs Must Fall* – relating to the pre-election battle between vested interest hard copy, TV & radio mainstream media ..and free range social media ( in which – as time & tech progress and a new generation becomes embedded in the population –  there can only be one eventual outcome)  *coined by  artist Michael St.Mark, March 2015.

* Update 11th May. Despite the election result falling on the side of the string-pulling establishment again this time, the trend towards social media usurping the static, one-dimensional ( the Murdoch-dimension ) mainstream as the de facto source for news and CAs will inexorably increase along with its free range of opinion and info choice –  therefore produce outcomes that reflect a better-informed electorate.

Art, for us, is not an end in itself, but is an opportunity for true perception and criticism of the times we live in “
– Hugo Ball,  father of Dada.

Jam Tomorrow” is an expression for a never-fulfilled promise. It originates from Lewis Carroll’s 1871 book Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There.[1] In the book the White Queen offers Alice “jam every other day” as an inducement to work for her.
