Once Upon A Time ...

Samuel Gomez's avatar Samuel Gomez

This serie is a surreal graphic satire depicting three different drawings showcasing contemporary concerns. The left panel, ‘Scarecrow’, is meant to comment on the negative effects caused by warmongers and war profiteers and how these keep the world population under a shield of baseless fear to carry out their agenda of terror for the sake of profits. The center panel, ‘Decrypted Savants’, comments on our endeavours to create artificial intelligence, nootropics and artifacts to enhance our current biological limitations without foreseeing that such ambitions could also lead us to a ‘Jack-in-the-box’ scenario. The right panel, ‘In Feudum Perpetuo’, is meant to comment on, who truly our world leaders are? If world decisions are still led by the plutocracy, we can then argue that we have evolved from living under a feudalist system to live under a more sophisticated system of reckless fiefdoms and we_the majority, are the eternal serfs.
