The Choice of a New Generation seeks to present an exhibition of works exploring the end of a post-internet generation, apocalyptic tendencies, post-truth agendas and the evolving, technology infused future.

 

Taking its title from the 1985 Pepsi commercial of the same name, where a group of school children are being escorted around an archaeological site whilst consuming cans of Pepsi. During the visit one of the kids comes upon a misshapen rock, later being revealed to be a coke bottle. When questioned the archaeologist confesses that he has no idea what the object could be.

 

Within the show, consumerist ideologies are questioned, our increased connection to the screen is embraced and true selves are ignored.
