This piece cites Plato’s ‘Republic’ and the character Thrasymachus’ argument that justice is used simply for the interests of the ruling elite, of the establishment and the strong. That the concept of justice is nothing more than simply a name for a system that has been imposed upon a people by a ruling elite.

This point is used to relate to the real world reality within the United Kingdom at this time, whereby a ruling establishment claims a unity in sacrifice during times of austerity when in truth, such a thing is nothing more than a name attached to a system of hypocrisy, of unfairness and persecution. Whilst a nation starves, its ruling elite prosper by means of Justice as Trickery.

This point is etched across the shot and placed across, beside and within a globe that represents the world in which we inhabit. The orb in which we are kept.

Justice as Trickery.., our united kingdom, 2015 – forever.
