What is Agent Smith whispering in Morpheus’ ear?
Agent Smith: “I’d like to share a revelation that I’ve had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you’re not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You’re a plague and we are the cure.”
“I can’t stand it any longer. It’s the smell, if there is such a thing. I feel saturated by it. I can taste your stink, and every time I do I fear that I have somehow been infected by it.”
“Can you hear me Morpheus? I’m going to be honest with you. I hate this place, this zoo, this prison, this reality, whatever you want to call it. I can’t stand it any longer.”
BIO: Peter ‘CTO’ Seaton is a Melbourne based, Urban Contemporary artist. Studying fine Art at Whitecliffe college of Art and Design developing a comprehensive understanding of the gallery space, Peter felt he wanted to make art available to the general public. This wave of thinking coincides with the rise of what some would coin the biggest art movement in history: Street Art. Peter’s work is a pursuit to expose the intangible aspects of the human condition. Ideas that we all innately and inherently apart of a divine intelligence which permeates all thing are explored using the human form and geometry. Peter has undergone work around Australia, New Zealand, USA, South America, Europe and Asia however you can find a high concentration of his work emanating from the walls within the inner city suburbs of Melbourne, Australia.
