everybody cares and everyone is fine was created by simon pericich.
When there are so many legitimate problems in the world, and your not sure which one to speak out about, instead of writing a giant protest banner which reads, ‘say no to right wing fascist dolphin killing, tree logging, capo, racist, child molestering, gene altering, nuclear power plants elitist drunk and drug fuelled immigrants who steal our jobs and have same sex intercourse etc ect’ why not build a multiuse protest float which caters to everybody’s needs? The car used in this work is a Humber, which is the type of car the politicians and royalty were chauffeured around in back in the early years of Australia. This work is a epitaph and monument to an archaic and no longer effective mechanism of social change.
