Welcome to the New Reality is a critique and analysis of American contemporary culture. The purpose of this thesis is to explore the concepts of reality, perception, beliefs, and truth and how these concepts can be skewed and manipulated by the media and elite for personal gain. It investigates ideas such as: simulacra, propaganda, and marketing and how each of these can psychologically influence an individual’s subconscious mind, as well as create a groupthink mentality. In addition to my research, I explore our culture through the lens of contemporary art, using it as a tool to change the context of what exists around us to invoke a new perspective for the viewer.
