Dark Web

Painting called 'Dark Web' featuring imagery from the darker side of the web

This one is a partner piece to ‘Web for All’, it reveals a flip-side to the opportunities the World Wide Web provides. Where there is space for good, there is also room for something else. I am always fascinated by the contrast between dark and light and an acknowledgement that this may not be the same for all at all times. For example, the mask in the centre represents Anonymous- Hacktivist group who target government organisations. If you are lucky to live in a free society, this would be disruptive and unfair to the innocent citizens affected. But if your government is corrupt and oppressing its populace, is this still so clear-cut?
