As an examination of the influence of digital technologies on people, Techknotopia vs. Cultural Tempest looks at addiction in gaming while considering the disconnected humanity that is lost in the digital world. Referencing Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland the artist investigates the phenomenon of techknotopia. Delving into the impact of travelling to other cultures and connecting with locals traditions, Smith examines cultural tempest as a life-changing exchange that can create collective harmony.
