How to Start a Revolution
There comes a day in life when you are forced to make a choice. And often this choice has to do with everything that represents your certainties, a house, a car, a job, the mall, lottery tickets, a warning system… Anything that slowly made you a sort of flaccid automaton, driven by mechanisms started by someone else. Everything that slowly forced you to succumb or to start something in turn. Maybe a revolution.
But it is not so easy to realize such a project like a revolution, without a minimum of collaboration from others. In short, the real problem is that many people must have the desire for it, and you probably know that not everyone is willing to leave their comfort zone in view of something as utopian or boring as freedom. All that remains is to have a look around, trying to be convincing. Perhaps by scattering some instructional pamphlet, a practical anarchist’s guide – don’t worry, Packard Jennings took care of the pamphlet.
Packard Jennings is a multi-disciplinary artist who uses appropriation, humor and interventionist tactics to explore the dynamics of public spaces and to address political and corporate transgressions against public interests. He strongly believes in sharing tools and skills with others to affect positive social change.
