2PM is an exploration of a hypothetical future. In this distant world, a scientific and technological breakthrough has ushered in a new political and social era: an individual’s measure of power over others can now be quantified and measured through the delicate swerve of a subatomic particle. This has led to the management or control of human impulses and the ego; coincidentally the overall population has also reduced considerably and humanity enters a lethargic new epoch.

Constructed from found footage and audio sourced from the public domain, 2PM is a montage of archival material which has been sutured into a narrative to reflect the idea that history is selective and that future wisdom relies on the interpretation of data and the reinterpretation of knowledge. This practice aims to create new political and historical narratives through visualising speculative futures.
