A Monumental Struggle of Good Versus Evil

Publicity is the oxygen of terrorism.

Many aspects of the mainstream press exacerbate the spectacle through their reporting of such issues because terrorism sells and news is business. 

Through experimental publishing, protest and performance, this project challenges members of the mainstream media and their use of irresponsible language when constructing the 'terrorist threat'. 

Re-contextualising and publishing such rhetoric aims to make the public more critical and aware of the sensationalist coverage of such issues.
