It was 2015 when Chicago-native DONT FRET and London-based EDWIN, two artists for whom social commentary forms integral part of the human expression we know as Art, established a link between the unheard voices of two countries than would soon go through parallel political and social convulsions. Their collaboration, their bridge, serves both as a reminder and a beacon of hope, in what seems an ever-increasingly divided and isolationist backdrop, that no matter where you are from, where you are, and whatever labels are being forced upon you, humanity is and will always be a shared essence and, as such, a shared cause that will always ring True.
They offer testament of their collaboration at Unit 5 Gallery (London), in an exhibition that runs from the 10th of November until the 2nd of December 2016. WONDERLANCER interviews DONT FRET and EDWIN on this important shared project, their work as individual artists and more.
If a screenplay writer or any kind of storyteller wants to captivate us for the duration of their story, one of the key elements they must incorporate into their word play is: characters we can relate to and care about.
These characters have to be flawed and in desperate need of change, especially in their relationships with each other. The reader must find these characters interesting and captivating. After that is taken care of, when a film is made, the actors in the film have to take the writer’s words and turn them into natural, real people we can see and believe. The relationships in the film have to be complicated, enthralling and real. The performers must play off of one another seamlessly in order to take us on an emotional roller coaster that will have us coming back for more…
MOJO describes GEMMA RAY as ‘wondrous’, NME says she’s ‘untouchable’, and a host of other publishers and broadcasters have nothing but words of praise and reverie for her songwriting. From experience, we can say that she stole our hearts, and ran away with them on a Motorbike. At least she left us with Milk For Your Motors. Ah, Ray, you wicked songstress, ‘the road’ is long… We’ll see each other again.
In the meantime, may the world know about the words we exchanged.
What is the motivation behind mass digital social networking?
What feeds our digital self?
Are we to expect a decline in this activity and therefore a stagnation of social networking, any time soon, specially due to present privacy concerns and the difficulty faced by our brains to healthily filter such a massive flow of information and interactions, or, on the contrary, is this just the beginning of a complete break from how we have interacted with each other as a species up to this point?
We interviewed one of the most prolific writers in social science of his generation, Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, to try and get some answers, or at least, some knowledgeable hypothesis on the subject.

But Nicholas Roeg read some of his short stories and saw what today millions are able to see, too: A writer who blends history, legend and fiction with alchemic intuition, as he mixes the chemistry of our species’ will to survive with our common existential questions, thus threading the complexities of the individual into those of societies, and, ultimately, into what we know humanity is capable of.
Dorothy: “How do you talk if you don’t have a brain?”
Scarecrow: “Well, some people without brains do an awful lot of talking don’t they?”
Atticus Finch: “If you just learn a single trick, Scout, you’ll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.”

Most of the world population, whether they are ‘racist’ or ‘anti-racist’, perceive ‘differences in race’ as biologically real, meaning, as being the parameters that decide the classification of humans into genetically separate groups. Nothing could be further from the truth, because, over the years, geneticists, biologists and anthropologists have found compelling evidence that race, as a primary genetic divergence is biologically invalid.
There is no neurological patterning that distinguishes races from one another, nor are there patterns in muscle development and structure, digestive tracts, hand-eye coordination, or any other such measures.
Today, data show that the DNA of any two human beings is 99.9 percent identical, and we all share the same set of genes, scientifically validating the existence of a single biological human race and one origin for all human beings.
