Changing wars. Beijing. Fall 2001.
Gouache on paper. 55 x 80 cm.


Brute physical force has been superseded by what we have learned to call "high tech" gear.

But reality is somewhat more complex.
Humanity evolved into more and more complex systems.
Technology is part of those systems but it has no life of itself, it is used inside the multiple systems that interact together to form our "human societies".

The least we can say is that our understanding, at the start of the 21st century, of the working of those complex systems is "impressionist" at best.
We humans are lost in our multiple theories and don't grasp the whole picture of life anymore.

"Changing wars" is a trial to render our "impressionist" understanding and vision of the reality of 21st century wars.
