“RGB consciousness”, canvas, acrylic, 3 canvases measuring 60×120 cm

The peculiarity of thinking and perception of the surrounding reality of different generations is due to the coordinate system in which the individual was formed. Thus, Generation X developed under the total political regime of the USSR, whose moral and ethical norms simplified objective reality as much as possible and presented it in its own ideologically colored dichotomy: good / bad, hero / traitor, proletariat / bourgeoisie, worker / parasite, etc. .e.

Generation Y, formed during the collapse of the totalitarian system, showed its inner need to seek freedom and other options for understanding reality within a given dichotomy. This generation clearly demonstrates its ability to adapt to a rapidly changing world, which was formed by the need to “survive” in a period of chaos and disintegration of all systems (political, socio-economic, legal and moral and ethical).

Generation Z, unique in that, unlike previous generations, where there was an information vacuum (Generation X) and the beginning of information chaos (Generation Y), was formed in a period of information surplus, but more or less systematized through the development of information technology.

Cognition of the world around us through the screens of monitors and mobile phones, in turn, provoked a fragmentary perception of the surrounding reality, the lack of need for fundamental knowledge and the predominance of Generation Z, the so-called “clip” thinking.

The project was part of exhibition of contemporary art «Z-generation» which was hold in Modern Art Research Institute of Ukrainian Academy of Arts, Kyiv, Ukraine on July 2019.
